Simply safe…the way to go!
Teachers, youth leaders and parents…welcome to a page designed specifically for you.
Advice and information on this page has been independently sourced on behalf of Classic Coaches. When making transport arrangements for others, the law requires the organiser to be aware of their legal obligations and expects safeguards and systems to be in place for this purpose. On this page BUSK UK, leading independent advisors on transporting children and young people safely by road, provide guidance on how best to do that. For more information visit www.busk-uk.com.
Classic Coaches joined Simply Safe with a desire to enable schools to better understand the work and effort that goes into putting a safe and legal coach on the road. The safety of all our passengers comes first in every journey we make.
