‘unavailable’ when a risk assessment is undertaken, then the child is entitled to free transport, even if the distance between home and school is less than the statutory limit applicable to their age group. 330 There is no statutory duty on local authorities to provide transport for young people in post-16 education or training, including those with ALN. For those young people, travel requirements and funding should be considered as part of the transition planning process. This is particularly important when a child or young person is due to leave school and is expected to take up a place in further education. Those preparing IDPs for young people should consider the local authority’s transport policy for those aged between 16-19 and, if it has one, the local authority’s transport policy for those aged between 19-25. In particular, they should consider what concessionary schemes are available and what support, including financial assistance, is available. If, in preparing the IDP, it is considered that specific transport arrangements are required, relevant transport officers from the local authority should be invited to discuss the options available. Local authorities should consider having a named point of contact to discuss funding for transport and set out clear timescales when it comes to funding decisions. The dates should provide enough time for the child, child’s parent or young person to make alternative arrangements, including possibly considering a different provider of education if necessary. Under the Learner Travel (Wales) Measure 2008, local authorities must assess the travel needs of learners aged under 19 in their authority area, including having regard to the needs of disabled learners and learners with learning difficulties, and publish their transport policy for those learners. They should also consider including a specific part identifying their policies for those aged 19-25. FEIs should set out their transport policy and provide easily accessible information on the transport available for those with ALN on their website and in their prospectuses. They should also make clear their policies when they are offering young people a place on a course. Independent travel should be promoted, where appropriate, by local authorities, schools and FEIs. FEIs are in a unique position and are able to build on available good practice. The promotion of independent travel can be delivered through volunteers, students, peers, trainers, mature students or students doing care courses, who can be DBS checked and who are willing to 330 For more information on the risk assessment process, please refer to Chapter 5 of the Learner Travel Statutory Provision and Operational Guidance 2014 by clicking here.

Where learners are able to travel independently to their educational establishment, it might be appropriate for the local authority to provide Blue Badges, concessionary bus passes or community transport.
