Please take time to complete this consultation, Conwy County Borough Council is reviewing its Home to School Transport
Conwy County Borough Council currently organizes and pays for transport for learners aged 16 up to 19 years living in the county of Conwy CBC who are in full-time education and live over 3 miles from the nearest appropriate school.
They need to make savings here are the options you can choose.
Everything Stays the same. This would mean that Education Services and the Council would need to find the equivalent level of savings from elsewhere.
Introduce a charge for all Post 16 transport to all schools.
Introduce a charge for all Post 16 transport to all Educational
Establishments as in Option 2 but for the charge to be waived for learners who are eligible for free school meals.
Increase the minimum distance criteria for free transport from 3 miles to 5 miles to the nearest suitable school.
Discontinue learner transport for all Post 16 students and expect learners to make their own arrangements.
This would produce a gross saving of £420,000
