Nottinghamshire County Council will today seek approval to cut a free school transport system for children from September 2014.
The council said that cutting the Discretionary Travel Scheme will save £1.7m by 2017/2018.
Councillor John Peck, committee chairman for children and young people, said:
The financial pressures on local authorities at the moment are immense and in this economic climate it is difficult to sustain such a scheme.
Nottinghamshire is the only local authority in the country currently running a discretionary travel scheme like this - the other 150 authorities do not operate
