School transport disruption

Due to a national shortage of drivers and passenger assistants, we are experiencing disruption to our home to school transport services across North Somerset.

We are making every effort to minimise delays and working with operators to ensure that parents are informed in advance.

We are working closely with our bus and taxi operators to explore alternative arrangements where we can. In exceptional circumstances, we may have to withdraw transport completely or replace existing arrangements with a different mode of travel.

We know this will be frustrating to parents and carers so we will do all we can to keep you informed.

If your transport is delayed, vehicles may be used to do double runs as a contingency measure. It will be at your discretion whether you wait for the service or collect your child due to the delay.

We are sorry for any inconvenience caused.
