Visit organisers are advised to use only reputable and reliable providers for group transport.
East Riding of Yorkshire Council's Transport Services team have changed their procedures so that they no longer provide a list of "approved" or "accredited" transport providers as such.
We can still provide a list (available via the link/button below), but we must make it clear to schools and organisers of educational visits that:
a) the list is not a comprehensive list of available providers, and
b) the companies appearing on the list have not been accredited/approved in any way.
East Riding of Yorkshire Council have no preference for any individual operator. These operators included in the list have simply expressed an interest in operating contracts for the Local Authority.
List of Transport Providers
This list does not imply that other companies that are not on this list are in any way unsafe or unsuitable for providing group or public transport.

Use of Other Contractors
If visit organisers wish to use other contractors, they are advised to obtain assurances regarding the company’s operating procedures and safety management systems.
