Request: 

I'd like to know how many school buses you will be using in September to transport students to and from the schools in your area. I'd also like to know how many were used in the school years starting 2019 and also 2018.
I would also like to know how many extra buses and other transportation they will be using to ensure social distancing due to Covid-19.

Response: 

2018 we had 28 vehicles of buses made up of contracted vehicles and public registered services

2019 we had 29 vehicles of buses made up of contracted vehicles and public registered services (includes one new private service)

2020 we had 28 vehicles of buses made up of contracted vehicles and public registered services (as at today’s date one private service has no entitled students on board although it is still operating for non-entitled students)

September 2020 we also have another 7 public services vehicles arranged to transport students separately from members of the public to support their needs,
