Home to School Transport

We specialise in providing Home to School Transport carrying over 3,000 students every day, to primary and secondary schools, across four counties.

Home to School transport requires a separate application from your school application. You should make enquiries for school transport as soon as you know which school your child is likely to attend. Where you apply for school transport will depend on your entitlement to Local Authority provided school transport:

For entitled students (those who qualify for transport to your chosen school) – apply via the authority in which you live.

For non-entitled students (those who do not qualify for transport to your chosen school) – apply for a space on a Pulhams commercial school route.

Applications can be made at any time during the school year. We offer a waiting list for busy routes. You will not be able to travel on school buses unless you have applied formally, made the required payments and received a valid QR code or bus pass.

Applying for Home to School Transport

To make an application for the 2024/2025 academic year, set up an account via the Pulhams Home to School Transport app or E-Ticketing website.

  • After creating an account, select the correct school.
  • Select ‘Purchase ticket and choose your required stop.
  • You will first need to purchase a ticket for £100.00 . This is a non-refundable initial payment to secure the seat for your requested pickup location.
  • Once a deposit ticket has been purchased, you will be granted access to payment options in ‘ticket schemes’. Tickets are available to pay in 1, 2 or 6 instalments. All payments must be made by 31st July 2024.  When payment has been made you will receive a QR code for travel.
  • If you choose 6 instalments, a direct debit mandate will be sent separately and you will not be issued with a valid QR code until the direct debit has been processed.
  • You can share the QR code with your child/ren by adding them to your account and gifting them the ticket. They will also need the app to view the gifted ticket and use to show the driver when boarding. If you prefer, you can print the QR code.

Please ensure both the parent/guardian and student reads and understands the Home to School Transport Terms & Conditions and Student Code of Conduct.

Frequently Asked Questions

How should I apply for school transport?

All applications must be made via the Pulhams App or E-ticketing website. Create your account and purchase a non-refundable deposit "ticket" to secure each child's space. Shortly after payment has been made, tickets are available to purchase from your boarding location.

How do I pay?

Log into the app, click ‘my basket’, then ‘proceed to payment’ and enter payment details.

What happens if I choose to pay in instalments?

When you pay the first instalment of your ticket it will only be valid until February half term. The second instalment must be paid in order to receive a new QR code for the remainder of the term. Please take note of the Home to School Transport Terms & Conditions which clearly state that payment must be received for the academic year in full regardless of whether transport is used.

Do you offer discount?

We do not offer any discounts. The cost given on your ticket is a fixed price.

What should I do if my child no longer requires transport during the school year?

The Home to School Transport Terms & Conditions you agree to when applying for school transport state that the parent or guardian is responsible for the full years fee even if travel ceases within the academic year.
