UTC South Durham currently provides six different routes to UTC for students to use. These are provided by a mixture of local coach companies, national bus companies and our own mini buses. It costs, on average £1350 per student, for our transport to run and we will continue to subsidise these routes heavily into the 2023/24 academic year.
Currently, the cost for the service of £735 per student per year which is less than £2.00 per journey. This price will be subject to review over summer 2023.
This amount is spilt into ten monthly instalments and charged to pupil accounts. This payment is to be made monthly on Parentpay.
The cost of the bus is for a seat for the academic year, it is the same price for year 10’s, 11’s, 12’s and 13’s as we are unable to sell seats on the bus for the last month after exams have finished. The cost is regardless of location.
