  Apply now for school transport  
   
  Parents and carers are being reminded to make sure they have applied for school transport, if they have not already done so. West Lothian Council is currently working through issuing passes to children across the area, and anyone who wishes transport and hasn't applied should do so immediately. A number of changes to school transport across West Lothian are also being implemented from the start of the new school term following a review, which has led to unfortunate delays for some applicants.
