What support is available?

We will provide the most suitable travel assistance for the student. If we approve the application, this will be one of the following:

  • Personal travel budget (PTB)
  • Minibus or taxi: we normally provide shared vehicles. This could be a taxi or minibus depending on the number of people. Sometimes we provide a separate taxi for those with complex needs or if there is no alternative

We will usually only transport students at published nursery start and finish times. They may be expected to arrive earlier or leave later from nursery. This is to enable sharing with other students where it is safe to do so. We may also ask for:

  • Pick up and collection from another location
  • Parents or carers to assist with parts of a journey

You can request travel assistance to respite on term time days. The County Council will consider these requests using the same criteria as for other travel assistance.
