Introduction

We have Independent Travel Trainers working throughout Somerset in schools, colleges and resource centres who provide travel training to students with disabilities or special needs who are aged 14 years or over so that they can use public transport.

Independent travel training is encouraged for these students, who often cannot use public transport on their own. After the training, students have increased self-confidence and often go on to make journeys other than to college or resource centres.

There is no charge for this service.
