Buckinghamshire County Council are running a consultation to ask the public’s views on changes being made to the Council’s home to school transport arrangements. The consultation expires on January 4 2019. Please see their website Home to School Transport Survey
Here is an extract from the website.
We currently contract 164 bus routes purely for schools. More than a third of these routes partly or fully duplicate public bus service routes.
During our review of the home to school transport service, we have an opportunity to make better use of public transport, reduce duplication and improve quality. We believe combining school transport much better with public transport will provide a modern service, fit for the future that will offer students flexibility to travel. We will work with local bus and coach operators to make better use of public services that already exist and together we will plan additional routes that serve other areas.
