Bolton Council makes provision for assistance with travel between home and school for pupils attending mainstream and special schools and for eligible students with additional special educational needs attending college.

We have a duty to ensure that appropriate travel assistance arrangements are made for eligible children to attend their nearest suitable qualifying schools or other relevant institutions. The following pages detail the support available in Bolton.

These pages are a summary of the council's school travel assistance policies. They are intended to act as a guide for parents/carers and are not a definitive statement of policy. Please see the full policies for more information.
