No Pass, No Travel

Worcestershire County Council will be operating a 'No Pass, No Travel' policy on all contracted education transport services from September 2009 onwards.

It will be the drivers responsibility to check student's bus passes each time they board the vehicle, and the students must ensure they carry their pass at all times. Any students that are found not to be carrying a valid bus pass will be refused access to the vehicle.

The "No Pass, No Travel" policy is intended to ensure:

  • No vehicles becomes overloaded by unauthorised riders, resulting in illegal operation
  • Worcestershire County Council, schools and operators have accurate lists of all; students using transport services for communication and emergency purposes
  • Effective operation of the denominational, Post 16 and vacant seat payment schemes
  • Students use the correctly allocated vehicle where 2 vehicles may serve the same bus stop, again preventing overloading issues.

If your child's pass is lost or stolen, follow the guidance in the frequently asked questions to obtain a replacement. A Temporary Authorisation to Travel (TATT) can be obtained if a students bus pass is lost or stolen. This can either be obtained through the School Office, or by contacting the Worcestershire Hub by emailing worcestershirehub@worcestershire.gov.uk or telephoning 01905 765765. TATTS are valid for two weeks and only one will be issue per student per term.

It is parental responsibility to ensure your child carries their bus pass and gets to and from the bus stop until they have boarded the vehicle. If your child is refused access to the vehicle as they have not got a valid bus pass or TATT, it is parental responsibility to make alternative arrangements to transport your child to and from school.
