Bus Passes

Lost your bus pass?

You must have a valid bus pass in order to access school transport.

If you have lost your bus pass the bus company will allow a period of goodwill for you to try to find it (typically 3 school days). After that period you must purchase a replacement bus pass in order to continue to access transport – the bus company may send a reminder if a pass isn’t ordered. This will cost £8.50p.

Once a replacement pass has been ordered, travel can still be accessed whilst the pass is in production. The bus company may issue a temporary pass to make this easier if production is delayed.

Replacement Bus Passes should ONLY be ordered from the bus company’s website NOT the County Council website as this will cause delays in issuing:

New to Swavesey?

If you are due to start at Swavesey Village College in September and you are currently attending a catchment school then you do not need to take any action. Authorisation and issuing of bus passes will be handled automatically by the County Council and bus company.

If you are moving to Swavesey during the year or from a school which is not in catchment then you will need to apply for a school bus pass. To do this you will need to contact Cambridgeshire County Council on 0345 045 5208 or visit the Council’s Education Transport website pages: https://www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/residents/children-and-families/schools-&-learning/school-transport/

Moving home but staying at Swavesey Village College?

If, whilst already at Swavesey Village College, you are moving home and either need to catch a bus for the first time or need to move to an alternative service you must contact Cambridgeshire County Council in order for them to approve transport from your new address.
