·         The council need to ensure that the home to school transport services are PSVAR compliant and therefore direct or indirect fares cannot be charged.

Alternative options considered:

The following option was considered and rejected:

 

·         Tender for PSVAR compliant vehicles for September 2021 – Investigated (see section 3)
