Drivers
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.

Knowing your driver
And with drivers exclusive to each route, you’ll also 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.

Vehicles
Our transportation service is only as good as the drivers and the vehicles that enable it, which is why our vehicles are regularly checked, serviced and maintained. Our coaches and minibuses receive a regular monthly inspection to ensure they operate safely and provide the utmost safety for your child.

Comfortable and safe
Our fleet of vehicles consists of three 57 seater coaches and 11 modified, bespoke built Ford and Mercedes Benz minibuses with a separate luggage compartments for added safety.
