JourneyBatcher is a pre-planning tool to help Local Authorities identify which travel options for home to school transport.
Which students could walk to school, which students could use an existing public bus to get to school and which genuinely need dedicated home to school services.
The positive benefits are many fold:
- walking promotes active travel and a healthy lifestyle
- an annual bus pass is approximately 50% of the cost of term-time only dedicated home to school services – this option saves money and promotes ongoing sustainable travel behaviour
The potential impact is impressive with one authority expecting to make savings of up to £500,000 year on year.
JourneyBatcher is particularly useful for smaller authorities which may not have the benefit of an in-house integrated transport team.
