Tens of thousands of pupils in rural areas 'denied free school transport'
Funding cuts in England mean children are losing out in rural areas where the costs of transport are much higher
Tens of thousands of pupils living in rural areas of England are being denied free school transport because of cuts to services due to inadequate funding, council leaders claim.
More than 22,000 pupils in 20 county council areas have lost free travel to school in the last three years, according to council leaders who are warning that further cutbacks will follow without additional funding from government.
