Home to School Transport update March 2024

The Council has seen a high increase in the cost of Home to School Transport in recent years. Costs are a factor of demand (Mainstream and Special Educational Needs and Disabilities) and provision (fuel, mileage, places, labour, type of transport) etc). Within the current year, 2023 to 2024, the costs are forecast to exceed the budget by around £8m and further growth is envisaged for 2024 to 2025 and beyond. This update sets out the current position, “the challenge”, things in place to manage demand and cost, as well as other considerations.
