Independent Travel Training
Independent Travel Training is a service that can offer a young person training and support if they want to learn how to travel independently between home and school or college. Travelling independently opens up social, educational and employment opportunities. This service is provided by Doncaster Council at no charge to schools, colleges, parents or carers.
The training is for young people living in Doncaster who have a disability and/or learning difficulty and who attend school or college. The programme is open to young people who meet the eligibility criteria for assisted travel to school/college. It will help a young person to learn the skills needed to make the journey between home and school or college independently, either on foot, bus or train.
