Back to school Travel Survey

The West Yorkshire Combined Authority (WYCA) and the five West Yorkshire local authorities work in partnership to provide dedicated school bus services for around 20,000 children and young people across the region.  In September, when schools return in full, dedicated school buses will resume as before, with a small number of routine annual amends. 


The government says these buses will be allowed to use the full capacity of each vehicle.  The Combined Authority is working with councils and transport providers to identify which public transport routes will be the busiest in September. In addition to the 20,000 children who travel to school on public buses, another 20,000 travel on dedicated school buses. Subject to funding being available, more dedicated school buses may be provided.  


We urgently need to know how parents will respond to the Government’s guidance. By completing this short survey (less than 5 minutes) you can help us plan and protect the public transport network during the pandemic. 


Please view this page to find out more and access the survey.
