Public Transport

Children using transport that parents/carers pay for

If a parent or carer pays for a child to travel on a service bus that also carries members of the public and stops at designated bus stops on route, then it is the parent/carer’s responsibility to ensure  that the child is capable of travelling on their own and that their child understands the safety rules that apply.  If a problem arises in this case, it should be taken up with the transport company. The  local authority or school the child attends will not be legally responsible.
