School Transport Message from BCBC July 2022
No pass, no travel scheme (from BCBC)
A ‘no-pass, no-travel’ procedure remains in place for secondary school pupils from September 2022. From September 2022, the local authority will be introducing a pupil bus pass and a ‘no-pass, no-travel’ procedure for its primary-school transport service also.
This means that your child must present their bus pass on each occasion they use the school bus. Failure to present a valid pass will mean that they will be refused entry onto the school bus. In such a situation, parents take full responsibility for their child and their onward journey.
However, for the first two weeks of the new school year, the ‘no-pass, no-travel’ requirement will be suspended to allow pupils to collect their bus passes from the school reception.
In the event of your child’s pass being lost, stolen or damaged, you will need to contact the school reception, who will give you further advice on what to do. There may be a charge for a replacement bus pass, so it is very important that your child keeps their pass safe and secure.
