Post 16 transport policy statement 2022-23

Closed 1 Apr 2022

Opened 4 Mar 2022


Each year local authorities are required to consult young people of sixth form age and their parents as well as other stakeholders on the Post 16 Transport Policy Statement before it is finalised.

The Post-16 Transport Policy Statement outlines the help that might be available through the County Council, schools, colleges and transport operators to help young people of sixth form age and young adult learners aged 19+ who have an Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP) to get to school and college. It includes information about:

  • fares and concessions;
  • the Council’s home to school/college transport policy for learners with SEND; and
  • contact details for schools and colleges.

Why your views matter

The aim of the consultation is to check that the Policy Statement and related information is complete, clear and accurate. We would like to gather views from young people, parents and other interested parties.

At this stage, changes to the 2022/23 transport policy statement relate to dates only. There may be changes to travel costs before the start of the 2022/23 academic year and we will amend these as soon as changes are confirmed, either prior to publication or after. 

There are no substantial changes to the policy around the help from the Council that is available to young people although some minor changes have been made to the eligibility criteria to assist with accessibility and readability.
