Transport Service for Hubs
A minibus will stop at 5 stops in the area, picking young carers up and taking them to the Hub. The bus will stop at the same stops in reverse after the Hub, dropping young carers off where they were met. A Play Worker will be escorting the young carers on the bus to and from the Hub.

· Parents have responsibility to ensure their children are safe getting to and from the stop and waiting for the bus.

· If you drop off your child at the bus stop we will be expecting you to be waiting there to meet them after (unless you tell us they can go home alone). You must be there on time as to meet them as the bus will be unable to wait.

· The bus can only stop at each stop a couple of minutes, so please ensure you arrive promptly. Please also be aware the bus can get stuck in traffic and you may have to waiting longer than expected sometimes.
