Help with transport costs for over-16s
Local authorities have to publish a statement specifying the support available for students of Sixth Form age to help them get to and from a school, college or training. This includes young people who attend a special school Sixth Form.
The link to the Policy Statement for 2021-2022 Post-16 Transport is below:
Post-16 Policy Statement for 2021-2022 (pdf 291kb)
The East Riding's statement outlines the support for students with learning difficulties and/or disabilities who are aged 16 – 24 and are unable to travel to school or college independently.
Assessments are made on an annual basis.
Transport provided for qualifying students of Sixth Form age with learning difficulties and/or disabilities will be subject to a £540 contribution payment (£270 for students from low income families).
In exceptional circumstances the local authority may consider a reduction in this payment. More information is included in the policy statement referred to above.
