Bucks County Council is giving you the chance to have your say on proposed changes to home to school transport in the county.

Among the changes proposed include a new policy meaning free transport could only be provided to the nearest secondary school to your home address.

The changes are being proposed because the amount of money the county council gets from central government is going down, and because of there being a greater demand on the council’s children’s and adult social care services.

Cllr Zahir Mohammed, cabinet member for education and skills said: “We appreciate this is a sensitive subject, so we’re keen to get opinions from as many people and groups as we can, to help us find solutions.

“By giving us your views, we can hopefully find a way through these issues that’s agreeable to the majority of parents, carers and residents.”

The consultation runs until July 15.
