Application for Paid Bus Passes – Academic Year 2021/2022

Due to the Public Service Vehicle Accessibility Regulations, which came into force from January 2020, it remains uncertain if we will be in a position to continue selling passes on some of our services that have more than 22 seats from September 2021.

We are awaiting further information from the Department for Transport and will provide more clarity on our position as soon as we are able to. See the report that went to the Councils Executive Committee in May 2020 in relation to this.

Regardless of whether you are applying for the first time or have had a pass before, you should not assume that you will be able to buy a pass from us in the future. We advise that you prepare for an alternative method of transport to get your child to school in the event that we are not permitted to sell passes on those services that could be affected.
