Please be aware that from September 2024 our parental contribution charge will be increased to £488.

Students who live in Monmouthshire and who are not attending their nearest or catchment school may be able to apply for Concessionary transport. Transport is not guaranteed and will only be awarded if there are vacant seats on existing contracts. If transport is awarded there will be a charge of £440.  This does not have to be paid in one go and can be paid via an agreed instalment plan. The only condition is that the £440 must be paid before the end of the academic year.

If you do not live in Monmouthshire but have a child attending a Monmouthshire school, they will not ordinarily be eligible for transport. If, however we do have spare seats remaining after all the Monmouthshire residents’ applications have been considered, we will consider applications from non-Monmouthshire residents. If seats are awarded there is no guarantee that the seat will be available for the duration of the academic year as an application from a learner eligible for statutory transport will result in the seat being re-allocated to them.

Concessionary Transport is not a statutory service and is offered on a discretionary basis as such there is no right to appeal if you are not awarded a Concessionary seat.  Mainstream applications are assessed first, Post 16 secondly and then Concessionary, transport applications for Concessionary are assessed on a first come, first served basis.

Pupils will not be authorised to use a Concessionary placement until officially confirmed in writing by The Passenger Transport Unit.  If you are awarded transport and you move schools or address, then you are to advise The Passenger Transport Unit immediately in writing so that we can reassess your eligibility for the transport. If your seat is subsequently cancelled, we will review the balance on any payments and if necessary, issue you a refund. If you are paying by instalments, we will calculate the fee due at the point that the transport is withdrawn and advise you accordingly. You will remain liable for any outstanding payments. We will not accept applications for concessionary travel for any learner who has a balance remaining from a previous academic year.
