Our 16+ Transport Policy Statement
The Post 16 Transport Policy Statement sets out the way in which we have decided to exercise our powers and duties in relation to the provision of school and college transport for students aged 16-19. The policy includes information on some of the above.
The document has been written in accordance with Section 509 of the Education Act 1996 (as amended by Section 83 of the Education and Inspections Act 2006).
The policy seeks to ensure that no Surrey student is prevented from continuing in further education, due to lack of transport provision or a lack of financial support with transport costs. It also outlines the provision of transport schemes and assistance for post 16 students who live and/or study in Surrey or those learners who live in Surrey and attend an educational establishment outside of the county if it is the nearest provider offering the appropriate course.
Student Fare Card scheme
The student fare card scheme gives students aged 16-18 who live in Surrey reduced rate bus and/or rail travel to schools and colleges.
