We have produced a range of leaflets giving advice about school buses. There are separate leaflets for pupils and parents, for schools, and for bus drivers and operators.
There are also leaflets setting out guidelines for transport to special needs schools, plus different leaflets for parents and carers, for schools, for drivers and escorts, and for contractors.
Some children are entitled to free transport to and from school.
