From Tuesday 12 December 2017 to Wednesday 28 February 2018 Suffolk County Council are asking for views on proposed changes to school and post-16 travel policies in Suffolk.

Suffolk is facing a huge challenge. The school and post-16 travel service is no longer affordable and capable of meeting the needs of the growing demand driven by new housing and schools, and the increasing transport needs for those with special educational needs and disabilities.

While significant savings have been made from other parts of the council, we have protected school and post-16 travel for a number of years. We have actually increased the amount we spend by £3 million. Last year we spent £21 million.

We have already made changes that have made the service more efficient. We now need to consider changing the policies and we want to hear what Suffolk residents think about options about how to do this.

Reviewing school and post-16 travel also give us the opportunity to see if other residents could benefit from the buses going to and from schools and post-16 colleges.
