Passenger Transport Contracts

The Council procures contracts for the provision of passenger transport services for home to school, social care and local bus services. To be able to bid for contracts, you must have made a successful application to join our Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) for Passenger Transport Services NCCF41347. We encourage applications from bus, coach, taxi, private hire and rail operators.

Applications to join the DPS can be made at any time by doing the following:

Current contracts

Details of current contracts are published monthly on our Contracts and Grants Register.   

Future contracts

Certain contracts need to be procured at short notice due to customer requirements. We tend to run two procurements a week, with contracts issued on a Tuesday with a return date of the following Friday, and on a Thursday with a return date of the following Monday.

The day-to-day management of contracts is undertaken by the Travel and Transport Team.

We have a programme of reviews for contracts into high schools and certain day centres as well as local bus services. Whilst this may change you can download the current programme (PDF) [54KB]. The programme is reviewed and update every 3 months.

Historic contracts

Records of contracts from the last quarter are available in the 'Documents and guidance' section on this page.
