Bus Transport of School Students
The contract concerns a framework agreement for the delivery of bus transport to Den Magiske Fabrikken (DMF) [The Magic Factory]. The transport will take place during regular school hours. There will be a need to transport employees and students from the individual schools to DMF, and back to the schools again after an average stay of 1,5 hours (round trip). We need to transport up to 250–300 classes (25–30 students per class). This concerns sixth form colleges throughout Vestfold county, and also for 6th and 9th grade from the following municipalities:: Re, Horten, Tønsberg, Sandefjord, Færder, Holmestrand and Larvik.
The 2019–2020 school year is estimated to have a transport need of 133 days with two tours per day, distributed across September, October, November, January, February, March, April, May and June.
