Following a successful campaign by the Positive Action Against Transport Cuts (PAATC) group that concluded in February 2020 to keep the school bus service to Robert Mays School that many of our residents’ children use, Hampshire County Council (HCC) have launched another consultation surrounding the School Bus service in a bid to plug the £80 million hole in the budget. Although not quite so drastic as removing the service completely, as per their previous proposal, they are proposing significant changes that could affect all users.

For those whose children use the post 16 transport service there is a consultation on a proposed increase in parental contribution.
