Changes to parking restrictions due to coronavirus and new parking charges

From Monday 1 June, parking restrictions will resume and motorists will need a permit to park during controlled parking times. Anyone found to be parked without a permit may receive a Penalty Charge Notice.

We have issued more than 5,000 temporary parking permits to key workers and we will continue to support frontline NHS and school staff, emergency services and council social workers to park for free using new paperless virtual permits.

Passenger transport services

Who are we and what do we do

We operate a range of vehicles from 15 seat minibuses to 35 seat coaches. The vast majority of our fleet is fully accessible to wheelchair users.

All staff operating our services have appropriate training in dealing with children and adults with disabilities, wear uniform, carry photographic identification, and are routinely checked through the Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS).

Passenger transport services arranges and delivers all the home to school or centre transport for children with Special Educational Needs (SEN) or adults with care plans. We currently operate 43 daily routes with our own buses and manage approximately 80 regular routes operated by our external partners.

Passenger transport services also supports schools and colleges by providing transport to swimming baths, after-school clubs and trips to residential centres. We also provide transport to local voluntary and community-based groups.

Transport services also operates a public MOT bay, manages and maintains the council's fleet of 180 vehicles and operates the collection service for underground refuse containers on many housing developments in the borough.
