School bus season tickets

4. Season ticket prices

Your child's season ticket will be valid for the rest of the academic year from the date of issue.

If you order a season ticket valid from any date in September you will pay the full price from that month (and so on for each following month). We will, however, be happy to arrange for your pass to be valid from the 1st of the next month. If you choose this option we will send the pass out to you a few days before it becomes valid.

Please see the table below for the list of charges.

Direct debit price per month £44.00 £60.80 £76.00

You can choose to pay for the whole year or spread the cost by paying by direct debit.

If you choose to pay by direct debit and your pass is valid from September you will pay ten direct debit payments, if your pass is valid from October you will pay nine direct debit payments and so on. This is subject to us receiving your application in time to set up the mandate with the bank. All direct debit payments must finish before July and your payment schedule will be arranged accordingly.

Please see the full terms and conditions for more information about paying for passes.

Year 11 students

Students in year 11 usually leave school before the end of the academic year so we base the cost on 9 months rather than the 10 for a full year pass. The direct debit terms will be reduced by one month to reflect this.

School transport consultation 2019

Thanks to everyone who shared their views on our proposed change to our school bus services.

We received 193 questionnaire responses and are now analysing the feedback received. This feedback will be used to inform a report going to a meeting of the county council's Cabinet where final decisions will be made.
