Bus Information

School Transport

Free school transport

Normally it is the responsibility of parents to get their children to and from school safely. However, your child may be able to get free transport to school if they meet one of the three criteria set out by West Sussex County Council.

Find out if your child aged 11-16 years is entitled to free school transport and how to apply here.

Paid School Transport

In parts of West Sussex the Council provide coaches, buses, minibuses and taxis for pupils who are entitled to help with transport between home and school. Sometimes there are spare seats on these vehicles which they offer to pupils who do not qualify for assistance. These are called 'concessionary seats'. Please note that:

  • There is a charge for these seats
  • Concessionary seats are not available on public transport
