Shropshire Council

Post 19 (19 year olds+)

All applications for travel assistance for September 2023 will need to be received by 30 June 2023 at the latest.

For nursery and post 16 students all students in these age groups need to apply annually for travel assistance.

Any applications received after 30 June 2023 will still be processed but transport may not be set up for the start of the academic year and parents / carers will need to make their own transport arrangements in the interim.

If you have any questions or queries, please email the Specialist Travel team.

For full details and how to apply please visit our travel and transport pages.

Whilst the council actively encourages young adults to participate in education and training, to progress their pathway to employment and maximise their independence; it is expected that the vast majority of adult learners will make their own travel arrangements and meet the cost of those arrangements.

However, in exceptional circumstances the council may conclude that it is necessary to make arrangements for the provision of transport.

Entitlement will need to be reassessed on an annual basis and necessary evidence must be supplied.

We assess every young person on their individual needs. The obligations that apply to school transport derive from the Education and Inspections Act 2006, (in particular section 508 A-G), and the Department for Education post-16 transport to education and training guidance.
