Tickets/bus passes are purchased online through ShuttleID. Account holder (parent) can send a link to pupils mobile phone. We can issue cards to use as a back up.
Each ticket/bus pass has a unique QR code, pupils scan their ticket/bus pass when boarding the bus. Driver, and pupil can easily see if ticket is in credit as a brief confirmation message is displayed on the scanner screen. If account is running low on credit, a reminder is sent to account holder (parent) to top up account.
We follow the guidelines as set by Powys and Herefordshire County Councils for home school transport for learners. All drivers are fully licensed, DBS checks are carried out by Herefordshire and/or Powys County Councils. Vehicles used on school transport are all fitted with three point seat belts. Any concerns over pupil safety, or behaviour will be reported to School Senior Staff who we find are always very supportive.
In the event of inclement weather resulting in early
school closures or no Council contracted transport operating, we will follow the same instructions instructed to Council operated transport.
