Slough Council Travel Consultation

On Monday 20th June 2022 it was agreed at the Slough Council Cabinet Meeting that the Council would consult on five proposed changes to the Home to School/College travel service.

The proposed changes are as follows:

  • To allocate the provision of Independent Travel Training as an appropriate form of travel assistance
  • Introduce a Travel Bursary as a form of travel assistance available to families, to enable travel arrangements to be made or undertaken by the family
  • Begin the use of safe, co-ordinated pick-up and drop-off points for transport arrangements which historically have been co-ordinated using home collections
  • To cease provision of transport to faith Schools or same sex establishments in line with statutory obligations
  • Introduction of a contribution charge from those in receipt of assistance where the Council does not have a statutory obligation to provide free assistance to eligible individuals.

The Council’s Consultation went live on 23rd June and will close on the 21st July 2022 and can be accessed on the Council website – please click the link below
