Parents must register children with both School and with CTS to access the service. It is available to all passengers who are already subscribed to the school bus service. All CTS passengers who need to go to school during this difficult time can still use the school bus. Trying to keep everyone safe.
The parents who pay the annual contract by monthly payments should continue to make their regular payments. It is essential that everyone continues to pay to keep their annual contract valid. Applications for next year will be rejected for anyone who defaults on the current year. Where parents are finding it difficult to pay they should contact our office to make special arrangements.
Passengers WILL NOT be allowed on the bus unless they are wearing a face covering and have the new Travel Pass/Lanyard clearly visible. Full details are in the information booklet sent to all passengers with their travel pass.
CTS Bus Ltd. Manage and run School Bus Clubs and take children to Crossley Heath School, Halifax. Wakefield Grammar School Foundation Schools in Wakefield, Huddersfield Grammar School. These are all private bus clubs available only to passengers attending the schools listed. They are not available to the general public. Passengers have to pre-register to join the Bus Club and membership is for a full academic year. Individual bus fares are not charged and it is not possible to pay the driver for single journeys either prior to, or on the day. We do not discriminate against anyone with accessibility or other special needs and membership is open to everyone who meet our membership eligibility. However there is often high demand and when a club / route is full then applicants will be added to a waiting list. Taking children to school safely is our priority and the journeys are not not available to any adults or anyone not on the students roll at the college or school. We engage various coach companies to provide vehicles and these have to meet our exacting standards. We do not use regular service buses as we insist on all members having a seat and a seat belt to travel as safely as possible. Where required we offer wheelchair accessible vehicles and it is important that if any accessibility issues are present, CTS office must be informed immediately. This ensures we send the correct and best vehicle for the journey. When you apply for a seat on our school bus you are committing to a full academic year contract. There will be no discounts or refunds of any kind regardless of how often the bus operates. Where a school has temporary closures or restricts access to pupils this does not affect your contractual obligation to pay the annual fee in full. All parents and passengers are aware of the possibility of school closures and when you book on the bus you accept that epidemics or other external factors may result in you not been able to use the bus. However the annual contract still has to be paid in full. The bus costs are based on everyone paying in full and as such anyone not meeting their agreed payment plan will be liable to recovery action. This is to ensure costs are kept to a minimum for all passengers using the home to school service.
Please follow us on Twitter to ensure you are aware of any delays or changes to the school routes. We will post any announcements on Twitter and on our Web Site.
