What Schools are saying

Thank you to all!

The whole team and management were great to work with and they were always helpful and willing. The bus drivers were punctual, polite and very kind to all our staff and students. The buses were of a very high standard and we never had a single issue all summer. Thank you to all!

The most efficient service

The most efficient service I've yet to use for my school's excursions. Communication is excellent, the teams they deploy are outstanding and I completely trust them to give our children the best experience. They think of everything meaning there aren't any unforeseen hiccups. I'd highly recommend for peace of mind and an efficient service.

Knowing your children are safe is a priority. But with all of us leading busier lives than ever, keeping track of their whereabouts is becoming increasingly stressful. Kura removes this stress and simplifies your life with our powerful Kura Parent App which notifies you:

• When your child has boarded or left their school bus
• If there are any delays to the journey
• If your child boarded or left their bus at a different stop to normal

Of course, our in-house customer services team is also available from 6am to 8pm every school day to answer any questions or concerns you may have, or to make any changes to your child’s normal pick-up or drop-off routine.

Powerful technology for unrivalled confidence

Kura harnesses powerful tracking and App technologies to provide a safer, greener and more intelligent school run service.

Saving schools 5 tonnes of CO2 every year…

The school run is one of the biggest threats to the air we breathe, accounting for ¼ of all peak-time traffic. Shared travel makes good sense in every way: less peak-time traffic can reduce emissions by 73%. Bus and coach travel is cleaner, more efficient, and with our Right Vehicle, Right Journey policy, we guarantee we’re putting the most appropriate vehicle onto each route. Replacing cars with buses reduces rush-hour school run traffic. Route optimisation via our powerful technology ensures the most efficient services. Kura ensures vehicles comply with high environmental and safety standards .
