What We Ask of You
Our colleagues – as do you – have the right to be treated with respect and dignity.
They must not be me met with with rudeness, abuse, or threatening behaviour. If such behaviour is encountered and persists, our staff may not continue to assist you. Should this arise in a vehicle, the matter will be reported to the relevant authority for further investigation.
24×7 will take appropriate action in respect of any individuals who are abusive to staff, including – if the abuse is from a passenger – making a recommendation to the relevant council that travel entitlement be withdrawn.
Monday to Friday between 09:00 to 17:00
A messaging service and/or a divert option will be in place. Messages via telephone, email, and SMS (text) will be monitored from 06:00 to before 09:00 and after 17:00 until 22:00.
Drivers and/or escorts will normally provide their direct mobile numbers to parent and carers so that any day-to-day transport requirements can be immediately addresses.
