A coach in front of taunton school

Transport Services

Our efficient, safe and reliable transport network eliminates the logistical nightmare of coordinating the school run for busy families. With a fleet of three coaches and 11 minibuses at our disposal, transporting day pupils to and from Taunton School is all part of our streamlined service. Our transport network covers 11 routes. Click on the route of your choice to reveal a map of the route, journey time and a timetable of pick up points.

Our zone system is fair, transparent and more affordable to families. Our current fees are:

  • Zone 1 – less than 3.5 miles – £3.45/round trip
  • Zone 2 – 3.5 to 10 miles – £5.75/round trip
  • Zone 3 – over 10 miles – £8.00/round trip

We know that entrusting your child’s welfare and safety to others requires a huge leap of faith, which is why we ensure our transportation service is incredibly safe and secure. Our drivers are exclusive to each route so you’ll benefit from the sense of security and familiarity provided by knowing the same driver will be responsible for your child’s safety and welfare to and from school. All of our drivers are contactable by mobile phone, hands-free of course, should you need to speak to your child.

We ensure the following from our drivers:

  • Employed by Taunton School
  • DBS checked
  • Driver exclusive to each route
  • Fire trained
  • First aid trained
  • Uniformed
  • Fully contactable by parents (mobile hands-free)
  • Register children daily

Our transportation service is only as good as the drivers and the vehicles that enable it, which is why we not only insist on fully vetted and highly trained drivers, but that our vehicles are regularly checked, serviced and maintained. Our fleet of vehicles consists of three 57-seater coaches and 11 modified, bespoke built Peugeot and Mercedes Benz minibuses with separate luggage compartments for added safety. All of our vehicles meet current carbon emission regulations and have speed limiters, seatbelts, fire extinguishers and first aid kits fitted as standard. Our coaches and minibuses receive a regular monthly inspection to ensure they operate safely and provide the utmost safety for your child.
