We offer school bus passes to pupils attending their 'catchment school' but do not live within a safe walking distance.

These passes may be for dedicated home to school bus services or for public service routes.

  • York Pullman Bus Company provide our dedicated home to school bus services. Contact the York Pullman Bus Company with queries about timetables, new or lost passes and purchasing a concessionary place on a school bus for your child
  • iTravel York has information on public service buses covering areas that are not served by our dedicated home to school bus service

When we allocate school places we will automatically contact those pupils who we think are eligible for help with travel to school.

If you live in York and think you are entitled to a school bus pass, you can see our home to school transport policy, or contact us.
