Transport entitlement guidelines

Find out if you’re eligible for Local Authority transport to and from college.

Learners who are entitled to Local Authority (LA)

If you receive support with transport at school it is likely that you will continue to be able to access transport for your course at college. The ALS development co-ordinator will offer all learners entitled to LA transport advice and guidance for transport arrangements.

Learners who are not entitled to LA transport:

  • Learners unable to use/access public transport may be offered a place on a college mini-bus.
  • The mini-buses are adapted to meet the needs of wheelchair users.
  • If a learner is unsuccessful in obtaining a place on the college mini-bus, transport arrangements then become the responsibility of the parent/carer.
  • The student support team can give advice about travel cost assistance – MegaRiders/free buses.
  • When making decisions about financial support, all benefits will be taken into account.
  • Learners in receipt of Mobility Allowance or who have use of a mobility vehicle will be considered a low priority.
