It is the responsibility of parents to get their children to and from school or college safely, however, we provide bus and taxi services for children who are eligible to receive free transport.
Any spaces left on these services can be used by children who either pay a daily fare or buy a travel pass but spare places are allocated on a priority basis. Find out how to apply to buy a travel pass and get on the waiting list.
Free school transport is available to only some schools in and around the East Riding. Find out if yours is one of them - take a look at council-operated bus routes.
Please note: taxi services are only available to students eligible to receive free transport who attend schools where full bus services aren’t required or have special travel needs, for instance, disability or behavioural needs.
Seat belts must be provided where there is a legal requirement to do so, but where there is not, the council does not ask for or require seat belts to be provided. Where seat belts are provided, they must be worn at all times.
If your child is eligible to receive free transport but there isn’t currently a service running to your school, we will still provide transport.
If this is the case, apply online via the free school travel pass online form and once your application has been processed, we will contact you with more information.
