We asked for your views on the Post 16 Transport Assistance Policy for September 2022. There was just one proposed change to the current policy to raise the cost of a surplus seat from £800 to £825 pounds. Please be aware of this proposed increase in cost if you apply for a surplus seat for September 2022. Dorset Council Cabinet will approve the final cost of a surplus seat on 26 July 2022.

We provide free school transport for students who meet our eligibility criteria

The type of school transport you receive will vary depending on where you live. We can support families by providing a Personal Travel Budget or a bus pass to join one of our school transport routes. Transport could be a school bus, public bus, minibus or taxi.
