Could someone explain how the transport application system works please?

I've heard nothing since I applied for transport on the day applications opened. When I log in it just says '1st round' and there is now nothing in the status box, whereas previously it said 'pending' or similar. My daughter is a new applicant, I do know that renewals take priority but can't find any other useful info to gauge when we will hear from them.

They usually send the bus pass at some point later in the summer. I'm not sure I ever had notification other than that although it is several years & we have been on renewals ever since.

Thanks Scary mum.
I think they would let us know if we had a place or not first though, and want us to pay them some money. I think there's a closing date and they write to you but I can't seem to find any of that info now :?

Oh I see, yes you will get a letter if you haven't already paid. According to my letter this year, the deadline for renewals is 11 June, so I'm guessing it won't be until after then. If you are happy to say where you are coming from someone may know how well subscribed the bus route is.

I see, so they will then get around to the new applications once they've dealt with renewals.

Yes, happy to say. We're hoping for a seat on either the bus from Edlesborough Nr. or the one from Eaton Bray - to Aylesbury High.

petit-pois your DD should be fine :) both my DCs currently use this bus and there are always spaces, mainly due to older children preferring to use the public bus (61) as it's cheaper and thus releasing spaces for the younger years.
