Durham County Council are seeking views on potential changes to home to school transport arrangements in County Durham.
We’re seeking views on potential changes to home to school transport arrangements in County Durham.
We currently provide home to school transport for almost 9,000 children and young people across the county every day.
Growing demand and inflation have seen the cost of providing the service rise in recent years – next year’s budget includes an increase of £9.6 million, taking the service’s overall budget to £29.2 million.
Following a detailed review of home to school transport arrangements in 2021, we’re proposing a number of changes aimed at transforming the service.
As well as looking to ensure value for money, the proposals seek to help develop the independence of children and young people.
