How we can help your school

Home to school shuttles

Are you planning for your students to return to class? One big worry for school, students, and parents alike is safety. While you can monitor and implement safety measures in and around your school buildings, what happens when your students need to travel? Whether that is to get to school, get home or in between classes or campuses.

Now is the perfect opportunity to find a transport solution for your students that will enable them to get to and from school, safely and securely. Within our school travel services, we can offer your students a shuttle service that can pick them up near home and take them to school, shuttle them between campuses and more.

Our teams of industry experts are doing everything that they can to ensure the safety of your students whilst on-board our vehicles.

COVID-19 Safety Compliant

The safety of your students is of top priority, and we want to assure you that we are doing everything that we can to ensure their safety whilst on-board our vehicles.

We have implemented enhanced daily cleaning regimes with fogging technology; this disinfects all on-board customer touchpoints, minimising the spread of harmful germs and bacteria. All of our vehicles have new maximum capacities which allow for social distancing with unavailable seats clearly marked. There are also new boarding and alighting procedures which reduces the risk of walking past seated passengers to again ensure that passengers can adhere to social distancing rules. All of our drivers are also issued with mandatory PPE and are temperature checked prior to boarding vehicles.

Maximise your budgets and save money

We understand that school travel budgets are tight and need to be maximised. On one hand, it’s great having budget leftover but on the other, it’s also a pain because now you’ve got to decide how to spend it before you risk losing it!

Whether your budget runs within the academic year, calendar year or financial year, you don’t want to risk any of your remaining budget going to waste when the year is up. We have come up with a savvy way of helping you safeguard your budget – so it doesn’t get taken away!

All you need to do is tell us how much travel budget you have remaining at the end of the year and we will arrange an immediate invoice for you. And don’t worry, we’ll give you until the end of the following year (academic, calendar or financial year) to use up your leftover budget.

Once you start to confirm your requirements we will deduct the cost of each individual trip you are arranging from the budget that you have ‘lodged’ with us until it has been used up.

As a nationwide provider of school coach hire, we know that utilising your school travel budget efficiently is one of your top priorities. So, we make it our priority to get you the very best coach hire rates. We have educational savings that can reduce your coach hire by over 50%!
