Post-16 education transport

From 1 September 2017, financial support will only be available for students living in low income households who meet the Council’s qualifying criteria.

Support will continue for students who are already part-way through a course, which started before 1 September 2016, for the remainder of that course only.

Support will also continue for students with statements of special education needs and disabilities (SEND) or Education Health and Care Plans (EHCP) who meet the Council's qualifying criteria.
