Extended consultation on home to school transport

We have previously sent a text link to this very important consultation, if you haven’t responded as yet, please read the information below and follow the link to share your views. Many thanks.


As you are aware the Council agreed to carry out a consultation to review its current Home to School Transport provision for children and young people in Rhondda Cynon Taf. The proposal sets out a new Home to School Transport Policy, which maintains certain discretionary transport provision and provide mainstream English, Welsh and Faith primary school, secondary school and college transport in line with relevant statutory distance criteria. Any new policy would be implemented from the start of the 2025/2026 academic year.




The consultation originally ran from 27thNovember 2023 until 5pm 8thJanuary 2024.



The Council recognises the significance of the proposal for pupils who use and will use home to school transport now or in the future, and the extended consultation provides a further opportunity for those potentially impacted to take part in the consultation. The Council has therefore taken the decision to extend the consultation for a further three week period running from Thursday 18thJanuary 2024 until 5pm Thursday 8thFebruary 2024.



The details of the proposal and the opportunity to respond to the consultation can be found at: Consultation on the Council's Home to School Transport Policy | Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council (

There is no need for anyone who has previously taken part in this consultation to submit a further response unless they wish to do so.



Kind Regards
