Wellfield Transport Tender
Introduction to the Proposed Contract
This contract is for a dedicated bus service for students attending the school, which takes students from the Eastern edge of its catchment areas. The routes will transport non-statutory, non-fee paying, students.
As demand for places at school alters year on year the school would like to be able to expand its bus routes if necessary or offer different routes to support children to attend the school, this could include changing the size of a bus on a particular route or adding another service.
Due to this potential extra requirement this tender will be split into two lots.
