We take the safety and wellbeing of the children on our transport very seriously, so all contractors need to qualify to be on our framework of preferred suppliers.  To do this they have shown evidence that their drivers are trained, have enhanced DBS clearances, that the companies are financially stable and have policies regarding health and safety.  Only when Bath & North East Somerset are satisfied are they invited to bid for Home to School Transport Routes.
