Travel assistance for Post-16 students

We want all young people to have the same access to opportunities in life: to travel, to gain employment, have friends and relationships, to live as independently as possible, to have a good social life and to be valued in their community.

Learning to travel on public transport is an essential skill. We actively promote independent travel so that all young people can access their community, training and learning opportunities as well as social and leisure activities.

Applicants with severe mobility or learning difficulties may apply for discretionary travel assistance by filling in the Request for Travel Assistance Post-16 form. Criteria for determining eligibility are as follows:

The student must meet all the below criteria to be considered.

  1. Live permanently in Coventry
  2. Attend a full-time, suitable course at a suitable school, further education college of institution or 16-19 academy
  3. Be aged 16-18 at the time of application, or have started the course before their 19th birthday
  4. Be unable to travel to their course independently and exhausted alternative options available to them
