HATS: Home to School Transport

At the Health and Transport Services (HATS) Group, one of our most important ongoing commitments is providing special educational needs and mainstream home to school transport for children.

HATS are dedicated to delivering the best and most effective experience possible when it comes to home to school transport, operating in more than twenty Local Authorities and Shires within Greater London. Our services provide a safe and reliable means of transport for those currently in education.

HATS Henry Bilinski School TransportOperating a large range of vehicles – including saloon cars, MPVs and 14, 16, and 24 seat buses – our home to school fleet is fully equipped; led by a team of highly experienced staff. All our vehicles are staffed by qualified PCO (Public Carriage Office) licensed and PSV (Public Service Vehicle) qualified staff whose extensive training includes Appointed Persons Training, Handling and Lifting, Client Care, Health and Safety and Safeguarding and Incident Reporting. All of our PSV drivers also receive MiDAS (Minibus Driver Awareness Scheme) training, of which HATS is an accredited trainer though the Community Transport Association.

Alongside employee training on our school transport services we also provide Passenger Assistants on a number of different routes. Our Passenger Assistants are highly experienced and have specialist training to help aid those using home to school transport.

Operating from eight strategically placed depots and offices – providing maximum coverage within the London area – our SEN (Special Educational Needs) team co-ordinates with the Local Authority staff to ensure a smooth and effective service.

At HATS, we are very pleased that we can continue to deliver such a safe and reliable network for such an important cause. And with the success of our home to school transport network, I personally look forward to many more years providing excellent services.
