Leeds City Council and Child Friendly Leeds have produced a leaflet to help support the young people with SEND who have worked hard to achieve independent travel, and may be experiencing anxieties around returning to travel and school.
A video has also been produced, with the hope of giving young people the confidence to get out and about again.
The team has worked hard with partners at Metro to identify routes most used by school and college students, and to add capacity to the public transport network. This has included arranging adding duplicate services to existing bus routes, so that there’ll be an extra bus following on the key routes at key times. They are really confident that every child and young person who needs to use public transport to get to school or college, including those with SEND, will have services there for them. Metro’s web page here features a wealth of information about school transport, which will be regularly updated.
