TSS to operate flexible transport

Transport Service Solutions is pleased to have been given the opportunity to work with Cheshire East Council to integrate the current school operation provided on their behalf with the operation of Flexible Transport. TSS will operate the flexible transport service from the beginning of August 2019 ensuring that the service continues to support residents eligible to use it. Those who are disabled, over the age of 80, or who live beyond the reach of any other public transport will continue to benefit from the service.

By combining school transport operations of TSS with the delivery of flexible transport, the change represents a genuine opportunity for the Council to ‘spend less and deliver more’ by better utilising the company’s fleet of modern accessible minibuses, thus helping to safeguard the future of the service.

From 5 August, flexible transport will operate between 9.30am and 2.30pm on weekdays and more information about booking and operation will be available shortly. By increased promotion, it is hoped that more people will be able to take advantage of the flexible transport provided and TSS is looking forward to delivering the new service to residents. TSS will also take over bookings for the service and people will be able to get in touch to book individual transport – details of this will be publicised shortly.

Transport Service Solutions has a full Public Service Vehicle Operator’s licence with Quality Assurance certification, and also played a major part in informing and delivering the outcome of the 2018 Bus Review for Cheshire East Council and continues to monitor and manage all public bus and home to school contracts across Cheshire East.

TSS is pleased to be taking on the operation of the flexible transport service, to build on the successful ‘Little Bus’ operation currently operated by D&G Bus which will continue until August, and we are currently in discussions regarding staff who will be offered the opportunity to transfer to Transport Service Solutions.
