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 £250,000 in the first year with these growing and accumulating year on year.
We’re offering a FREE report to local authorities to enable them to understand the value of the potential savings available from making better use of public buses for home to school transport.
