Home to School Transport

Central Bedfordshire Council is asking parents and carers for their views on proposed changes to its home to school and college travel assistance policies, which outline who is eligible for free or discounted travel to school and college.

In certain circumstances, the Council provides support with home to school and college transport to school pupils aged 5-16, and students attending post-16 education.  The Council is proposing changes after parents, carers and professionals fed back about the existing policies during engagement sessions to review the policies.

It has launched a twelve-week public consultation to secure feedback on the proposed changes from the wider public.  The Council is proposing to:

  • Update its policy for children aged 5-16 to extend the eligibility criteria to cover more groups of children. This will include support for those in joint custody arrangements, and children with special educational needs.
  • Update the policy for 16-19 year-olds so that it is clearer for parents to understand, with the eligibility criteria remaining the same
  • Create a policy document outlining the clear eligibility criteria for parents and young people over the age of 19

The consultation runs until Thursday 22 April 2021 and further information, including access to the survey, is available here.
