BREAKING: School transport plans approved by councillors

Have your say

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.
