When accessing education, young people should be supported to walk, cycle or use public transport as the default.  There are health benefits for young people in walking or cycling to school.  Local communities also benefit through:

  • improved road safety
  • reduced traffic congestion
  • reduced associated noise
  • reduced air pollution

Where required, travel assistance is provided by the Transport Coordination Service.

Our aim is to promote independence to help prepare young people for adulthood and to deliver on providing a good quality service for those young people who need it, whilst balancing costs to ensure the most efficient use of resources.
