Nottinghamshire County Council will today seek approval to cut the Discretionary Travel Scheme from September 2014.
The council say that cutting the scheme which provides free school transport for children in the region will save £1.7m by 2017/2018
Children who currently benefit from the scheme will continue to be supported until they reach statutory school-leaving age.
Opponents argue that this decision will restrict parental choice meaning that children are unable to go to schools outside of their immediate area.
