Post 16 student travel assistance

The Council itself does not generally provide any transport or travel assistance for post-16 education. However, it does make some provision for young people aged 16-18 (and older in some cases) who have a Statement of Special Educational Needs/Education Health and Care Plan or have a disability or have learning difficulties. Such assistance is discretionary and is determined in accordance with the criteria set out within Birmingham’s Post 16 Transport Policy Statement.

However, financial assistance may be available from (or by applying through) the school or further education institution in question and Appendix 1 sets out full details of these schemes. In addition there are various concessionary travel schemes in Birmingham which may be available and these are set out in Appendix 2. There is also relevant government guidance which is available at: https://www.gov.uk/subsidised-college-transport-16-19

Birmingham's Post 16 Transport Policy Statement is available below.

The Post 16 Transport Policy statements from all Local Authorities in England and Wales are available at the GOV.UK web site.
