New rules for transportation of school students were announced in Sharjah on Thursday.

According to the decision issued by His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, school transport activity may only be practiced by operators authorised by the Sharjah Roads and Transport Authority.

Educational institutions may, under their direct supervision, administer school transport services or employ operators specialising in the provision of school transport on their behalf and in accordance with the conditions specified in these regulations.

The Sharjah RTA will issue a permit for buses for school transport, and permits for school bus drivers, set the conditions and controls for bus traffic on the roads, and issue a no objection certificate to request the issuance of a new commercial licence for the operator to practice the school transport activity or add the activity to an existing commercial licence.
