The parents bear the responsibility for safe transportation. The bus driver has the right to refuse to take you on the bus if there are valid safety concerns.

    A-ROSA can apply for free assistance/accompanying service at the airports for disabled or elderly people who feel insecure at the airport or on connecting flights.
