P-05-748 School Buses For School Children - Correspondence from the Petitioner to the Committee, 20.04.17

Good Morning,

Thanks for emailing me for clarification re: LouiseOldfield school bus campaign petition. I thought details had been explained in detail.

The petition goal is for School buses for school Children regardless of distance, the aim being a dedicated school bus so no members of the public can ride on with children, each child to have a seat rather than be expected to travel standing up on public transport buses, seat belts to each seat regardless of age, and of course drivers to be CRB checked. We do not expect the service to be free as nothing in life is free, the petition aim is for maximum child safety.

Dedicated school buses each child with a seat, seat belts pre child regardless of age, drivers would have to be checked unlike those driving some public buses, but like I said we don't expect children to travel for free, may be subsidised or a fair price. 

I hope I have explained things a little clearer and look forward to hearing back from you.

Kind regards
