Consultation on seatbelt requirements for dedicated school transport

This consultation aims to solicit the views of people and stakeholders with an interest in the area of dedicated/contracted school transport, particularly those in local authorities responsible for education or transportation, bus companies, those involved in education, schools, parenting groups or parents themselves. This will help inform and shape any legislation that may be brought forward in this area by a future Scottish Government. This is specifically on proposals for seatbelts to become a legal requirement within councils’ dedicated school bus contracts, which the Scottish Parliament has newly-devolved powers to take forward, rather than views or representations on the wider issue of school transport provision or safety in general.

The consultation is available on the Consultation Hub.
