Farepaying Home to School Transport

For pupils who are not entitled to free home to school transport to apply for a spare seat on a school bus to school or college.

Apply for a place on our Farepayer scheme

What is the Farepayer Scheme?

The Farepayer Scheme offers any spare seats on our school buses to school pupils and post-16 students who live in West Berkshire, and who are not eligible for free transport. 

There's no guarantee of a place as we don't provide extra seats for farepayers. These are spare seats on existing services, offered on a discretionary basis.

Applications received after seats have been initially allocated are only approved subject to availability. Please get in touch if you'd like to discuss.

For full details and prices please read the Icon for pdf Fare Payer Scheme 2023-2024 [579KB]  or Fare Payer scheme 2024/25 for next academic year.

For pupils

Pupils should read the Icon for pdf behaviour code [398KB] as they'll be expected to follow this when using our transport.

Post-16 students should also read Post-16 students: transport statement and the Post-16 travel guide 2024.
