Services by area


Home-to-school Service

We operate several home-to-school services transporting hundreds of pupils to mainstream and special educational-needs schools across the county. These services are contracted by and operated on behalf of the local authorities (currently Dorset County Council, Bournemouth Borough Council and Borough of Poole). Pupils are allocated to a service by the respective local authority, whose Passenger Transport teams then liaise with us and other transport operators directly. The local authority provides Passenger Assistants where required for special educational-needs services. Several of these services are for wheelchair users where we provide accessible vehicles.
