Post-16 transport provision

Here you can find out what transport is available for post-16 education.

No learner should be stopped from having further education due to a lack of support for school or college travel.

The Post-16 transport provision sets out the policy for the assistance available for post-16 learners that live in Calderdale. This is reviewed on an annual basis.

There is no automatic entitlement for free home to school or college transport for Post 16 students. The Local Authority support students through subsidised concessionary fares, the most popular being the Under 19 Bus Only Ticket.

If you can't afford to pay for bus fares each school or college has a 16-19 bursary fund. A student may be eligible to access this fund and should approach the educational establishment directly. 

To apply

To apply for the Under 19 Bus Only Ticket, visit: WY Metro.

Each year, before we make a statement for the next academic year, we want the views of:

  • Learners (of sixth form age in the next academic year) and their families.
  • Learners with SEN (aged 19-25) and their families.

This is, as well as, consulting the transport partner representatives. It will take place on the Council website via Engage. Schools and colleges will also be asked to let parents and learners know about it.
