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 "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
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
