Petition to Close School Transport Loophole
19 March 2018
Contact have found that more and more disabled children are being refused school transport or being charged for it, as councils exploit a loophole in the law.
How can it be fair that the law says a young person is expected to be in school or training until 18 but does not have the transport to get there once they turn 16?
They are calling on the government to close this loophole for disabled youngsters as they face additional challenges getting to school or college.
