School Transport Seminar

QRoutes is sponsoring a School Transport Seminar in Bristol on Thursday 10th November, 2022.

Who is it for?

If you’re employed at a local authority and working in any aspect of school transport, then you’re invited.

Why should I attend?

The School Transport Seminar is a great opportunity to compare notes and share ideas with people who are facing similar challenges to you.

It isn’t easy to deliver statutory (let alone discretionary) services when budgets are shrinking, demand is increasing, and the shortage of drivers is pushing prices up. And that’s before contemplating the added complications of insufficient school places and new traffic limitations, such as low traffic neighbourhoods and clean air zones.

The agenda is still being finalised. However, so far it includes presentations from

  • Jason Salter, Head of Service at Wiltshire CC,
  • Huw Thomas Jones, Transport Commissioning Manager at North Somerset,
  • Joshua Dean, Senior Transport Planning Officer at North Somerset.

If you have suggestions or an interesting case study that you’d like to share, please get in touch.

Where and when?

It’s being held at the Double Tree Hilton Bristol, a 5 minute walk from Bristol Temple Meads Station, or there’s car parking on site.

We expect to start at around 10:30 and run until around 15:30.

What’s on the menu?

We don’t know yet! The Chef will determine the menu closer to the time, but refreshments and a delicious two-course lunch are included as part of the day.

How do I sign up?
