A 70-seat coach operates on all journeys on this service. Our bus pass system offers parents certainty that there will be a seat available for all those who have paid. Prices and timetables are set out in our Transport Letter.
To apply for a pass, please either complete the section at the bottom of the letter. You can opt to pay monthly, half-termly or for the whole year: the cost will be discounted for those who pay in advance. The cash price for those students without passes will be £1.50 per journey, and priority will be given to students with a pass. Passes will be issued on a first-come first-served basis, and those students eligible for free school meals will be entitled to a free bus pass. We will require you and your child to sign a Code of Conduct.
We will run two minibuses from September, a Black minibus to Bilston and a Blue minibus to the Willenhall Road.

You can opt to pay monthly, half-termly or for the whole year. Students eligible for free school meals will be entitled to a free bus pass. We will require you and your child to sign a Code of Conduct.
Under a section 19 permit we are allowed to charge enough to cover running costs plus general wear.
