Bus operator John Smith and Son Ltd has told North Yorkshire County Council that it will not be in a position to operate its county council contracts from this afternoon, 17 January.

The company operated 14 and one local bus service under contract to the council.

The council’s Integrated Passenger Transport team has made emergency alternative arrangements with other local providers who will operate the home-to-school transport services with immediate effect to ensure that pupils entitled to free transport will be able to get to and from school.

The Local Bus Service 150 previously operated by John Smith and Son Ltd on Thursdays and Saturdays between and will not operate on 19 January. The council is reviewing its options for this service in future and is hopeful that some level of service can be reinstated.  Details will be posted on the council website when the council has concluded its review.



North Yorkshire County Council assistant director Ian Fielding said:

Our team has worked hard to make sure the school bus services continue to operate and we will be working closely with schools as we seek to make permanent alternative arrangements.

 

Details of the temporary arrangements can be found on the county council’s website, www.northyorks.gov.uk
