If you are unsure of the best way to travel, please make use of the resources available to help you understand your options and the schemes operated by the local authorities to support travel for students who are 16 and over.
KCC Vacant Seats Scheme
KCC Vacant Seats SchemeIf your child is not eligible for free school transport, you may be able to receive transport assistance through our Vacant Seats Payment Scheme.
If there are empty seats on the vehicles we hire for children who are eligible for free travel, we can offer these seats to other children. This is only available on existing transport, where there is a space and we cannot make any special arrangements to routes or times. There is a fee and seats are offered on a first come, first served basis at the council’s discretion.
