BUSK operate to promote safe road transport for children throughout the UK and specialises in all aspects of home to school transport and school trips. BUSK Benchmark is the UK's first and only completely independent star rating for the minibus and coach industry based on safety and legal compliance.
Benchmark License No: BE2719
We undergo independent audits that look at how our company is run, what systems are in place to safeguard passengers and to what standard drivers are trained. These checks are made periodically after that and all companies are subject to a random spot check during live membership.
The most recent National Guidance recommends using a transport company that holds an accreditation with an independent audit. There are several accreditation schemes available and most will look at the quality of the fleet but BUSK will always focus more on the safety and compliance history of each company and we have our own standard that our members must meet which is higher than the legal minimum requirement. National Guidance recommends BUSK Benchmark.
Is it safe to take a transport company at face value?
Anyone making transport arrangements for others will have a legal duty of care to provide a safe journey. Just hiring the cheapest option can undoubtedly compromise the safety of everyone. If you have the responsibility of choosing transport for others, it would be a mistake to believe that all you must do is check that a company has an Operator's License.

The Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) is a voluntary accreditation scheme for fleet operators which aims to raise the level of quality within fleet operations, and to demonstrate which operators are achieving exemplary levels of best practice in safety, efficiency, and environmental protection.
FORS Operator ID: 012593
We are one of only 7 operators in the UK to hold the FORS accreditation.
We have proved a commitment to good practice in all aspects of our business, including road safety, sustainability issues and many other aspects of corporate social responsibility.
To ensure that we are maintaining the FORS Standard, on-site re-approval audits are conducted annually for Bronze, every two years for Silver and every two years for Gold
