Pupils to miss out on buses

Some children face not having access to buses to school because the vehicles do not comply with new laws.

From January 2020, paid-for public buses must accommodate wheelchair users, but many school buses are not equipped.

The new legislature means that pupils not eligible for free school transport — who usually buy a place on board — will no longer be able to do so.

Local councils claimed they were unaware the law applied to school buses but the UK Government said they had informed them.
