Transport Information for SEND Students
Local authority transport
Some LDD learners may be entitled to free transport to College provided by the local authority, if they're under 19 years old and live more than three miles from Weston College.
For learners over 19 they can apply for the Vacant Seat Payment Scheme (VSPS) which provides access to this transport at a concessionary price. VSPS is not guaranteed and learners may have to be transported to a pick-up point. It costs around £450 a year.
Transport options are discussed during the application and interview process. Weston College liaises closely with the local authority and parents and carers are kept up to date with arrangements, priority learners commencing their course.
By bus - discounted bus travel
Learners who can travel independently can buy a bus pass (£70 a term) which allows them to travel five days a week, within North Somerset and Bristol.
