RH Transport Stops Operating
Oxfordshire County Council has arranged for replacement school buses on all routes affected by local bus company RH Transport going into administration.
The school bus contracts that have been put in place start from Monday 8 October and will run until March 2013 when a further tendering process for a longer period in to the future will take place. The replacement buses will run to the exact timetables as before.
Councillor Rodney Rose, Oxfordshire County Council’s Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Transport, said:
“We’ve made a lot of progress in a very short space of time and that is testament to the experience and knowledge of the staff in our public transport team and the strong professional relationships they have with personnel at bus companies throughout Oxfordshire and beyond.”
“I’d also like to thank all of the different bus companies with whom we’ve been in dialogue over the last couple of days. They’ve shown a great deal of flexibility and understanding.
“Regular users of services previously provided by RH Transport should also be thanked for their forbearance and I hope they can see that all at the council have rolled up their sleeves and worked hard on their behalf to minimise disruption."
