Can you explain what this contract is?

Thank you!
It takes wisdom to know what you know and wisdom to know what you don't know and when to call in those who do. Often the people who do know will advise that evidence and research are very helpful when making decisions. Who knows it might even save a bit of money.

I would have thought that SCS's biggest passenger was SBC!
What's it all about?

I guess this is their 'mini bus' operation carrying kids to school etc.

This from the Council's website:-

Swindon Borough Council can provide Special Needs and Social Services Transport in certain circumstances.

Schools If your child has a statement of special educational needs then he or she may be eligible for free transport to and from home and school. A statutory assessment process exists to determine whether a child is eligible for this service.

Colleges The Council's Passenger Transport Service organises and manages free home-to-centre transport for eligible people who attend day centres and for some students attending college. Please contact us to discuss eligibility criteria.

Day Centres Individual day centre managers assess who is eligible for transport and the Community Team for People with Learning Disabilities (CTPLD) determines eligibility for their clients (including some students attending college).

Ad-Hoc, Emergency and Older People's Transport The Passenger Transport Service organises and manages ad-hoc and emergency transport. This includes taking children in foster placements to and from school, respite placements, family contact and appointments. Transport is also provided for older people for respite. All transport requirements are identified by individual social workers.

The Transport Transport is provided under contract by local minibus and taxi/private hire companies as well as the Council’s contractor, Swindon Commercial Services.
