Apply for post16 travel scheme

If your child has an Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP) you don't need to apply for travel assistance. The Travel Independence Training Team (TITAN) are already assessing who is entitled to travel assistance and you will hear direct from one of the TITAN team soon if it's appropriate for your child. If we are requested to provide transport after 31 July, transport may not be in place for the start of term.

Before applying for the post16 travel scheme check our guide to local public transport operators. They offer discounted fares for students that are often cheaper.

New students

You will be able to apply for post-16 travel assistance for the next academic year 24/25 from 2 April 2024.
