We provide free home to school (HTS) transport for East Lothian pupils who live more than two miles away from their local primary or secondary school.

The pupil's home address is defined as being that of their parent or legal guardian, not the address of a childminder or relative who may care for them on school days.

In the event of parental separation, the home address is defined as the address of the guardian receiving the Child Benefit payment.

Free school transport isn't available if you choose to send your child to a school that isn't their local primary or secondary school.

Please contact your school office for advice on how to submit an electronic application form for HTS transport. Paper applications are no longer issued.


Smartcards

We encourage high school pupils to use public transport whenever possible. It is important each student has a valid Young Person Card with an up-to-date photograph on it. To order a new / replacement card or, to update your photograph, please contact your school office. They will arrange for your card to be issued and programmed through our Transport Services team. Requests must come to us from your school office in the first instance.

Smartcards are in use on following routes:

Dunbar Grammar School

Musselburgh Grammar School

Preston Lodge High School

Ross High School
