The fee charged to students may vary depending on the length of the route and the number of students / staff using the service. Transport fees are payable for the year.

Since this arrangement has been made privately between the parents and the owner of the van, the school can bear no responsibility regarding the care and safety of the students in such vehicles. However, in keeping with the law, parents must provide accurate details of the vehicle and driver to the school who will forward the same to the local ACP for verification and information.
