The consultation to change school transport arrangements in North Lanarkshire is now open and will run until Tuesday 9 January 2018.
Free school provision in North Lanarkshire is more generous than the statutory national guidelines and the consultation focuses on proposals to increase the qualification for entitlement to free school transport:
for primary school pupils from more than 1 mile from their home to their catchment school to more than 2 miles.
for secondary school pupils from more than 2 miles from their home to their catchment school to more than 3 miles.
