Privilege Pass Scheme

Where home to school transport is provided by private contact buses or taxis, there are sometimes additional spaces available on these vehicles after all free transport has been allocated. We allocate these spaces through our Privilege Pass Scheme.

If your child is not entitled to free school transport, you may be able to apply for a Privilege Pass. This is a concessionary space that may be granted after we have first met the needs of all children who are entitled to free school transport.

The process for awarding Privilege Passes is currently under review in light of recent legislative changes. The window for applying for a privilege pass for academic session 2020/21 is expected to open on 1 June 2020. At that time, a new leaflet containing all the relevant information to the scheme will also be available on this web page.

All children who travel on council provided school transport are required to adhere to the Pupil Acceptable Standards Statement (PASS). This scheme details the rights and responsibilities of children using the provided services.

Failure to adhere to PASS may result in the withdrawal of entitlement to transport services.
