Farepaying Home to School Transport

Applying for a place on our Farepayer Scheme

You can apply online for a place.

What is the Farepayer Scheme?

The Farepayer Scheme offers any spare seats on our school buses to school pupils and post-16 students who live in West Berkshire, and who are not eligible for free transport.  There is no guarantee of a place as we don't provide extra seats for farepayers; these are spare seats on existing services, offered on a discretionary basis.

Applications received after seats have been initially allocated are only approved subject to availability; please get in touch if you'd like to discuss.

Pupils should read the pdf icon behaviour code [398kb] as they'll be expected to follow this when using our transport.

Post-16 students should also read pdf icon Post 16 Transport Statement 2021 [418kb] and the pdf icon Post 16 Travel Guide 2021 [1Mb].

For full details and prices please read the pdf icon Fare Payer Scheme for School Travel 2020/21 [179kb] or pdf icon Fare Payer Scheme 2021-22 [576kb]
