Oxfordshire County Council’s cabinet has today (Tuesday) approved controversial plans that will see free transport restricted to pupils attending their nearest geographical school.

Following a year of debate, the proposals were carried despite strong opposition from some headteachers, governors and the Oxfordshire School Bus Action Group (OSBAG), which staged a protest outside county hall before the meeting.

Under the proposals, free transport will be provided only for pupilsā€™ nearest geographical school within the county from September 2015 ā€“ although those receiving free travel under the current system in September this year will continue to do so until they leave school.
