Terms and conditions of travel

Last updated: 14 October 2021


Buckinghamshire Council has a legal duty to provide free transport between home and school for children who are entitled under the county’s Home to School Transport Policy.

We also offer transport to other children in return for payment if there are spare places on vehicles already arranged to meet the needs of the children entitled to free transport. This is known as the ‘Spare Seat Scheme'.

  • the use of the words 'student' or 'pupil' applies to all children on transport.
  • the council reserves the right to amend its school transport policies at any time. The latest versions are available on the website.
