On the first morning of the new academic year, only those students who are eligible for free home to school transport will be permitted to travel on the school bus without a ‘Scholars Term Ticket’. Term tickets will be delivered to eligible students on the first day of the academic term in readiness for the journey home. Medina College will be issued with term tickets, timetables and student lists for contracted home to school bus services just prior to the first day of the academic year.
Parents/Carers of students who are not eligible to free home to school transport and would like to purchase a spare seat on a contracted home to school bus, should contact the Council call centre on 821000 or visit the Council’s School Transport webpage to complete an online application form for a ‘Spare Seat Scholars Term Ticket’. The School Transport Team will review all applications in mid August to ascertain if a spare seat can be allocated and those who have been allocated a spare seat will be contacted. The cost of a ‘Spare Seat Scholars Term Ticket’ is calculated at a rate of £1 per day, payable for the full term or pro rata for the remaining days in a term in advance.
