Concessionary Rider Scheme

Please read our information on how we are supporting residents and businesses, as well as information on affected services.

Where spare seats are available on vehicles contracted by Cornwall Council, parents/carers can apply and pay for their child to travel.  Such children are referred to as Concessionary Riders.

Concessionary Rider places are available where there are genuine spare seats available.  They are agreed until the end of the academic year, but can be withdrawn with at least seven days' notice if:

  • the seat is required for a child or young person who is eligible for transport
  • the service is withdrawn

In these circumstances a pro-rata refund will be issued.
