Home to School Transport Position Statement and Cost Analysis

Home to School Transport

In 2016, ADCS contacted all DCSs to request information on home to school transport spend in 2015/16. The data received showed that local authorities across England spent approximately £1 billion on home to school transport during 2015/16.

ADCS has shared the findings with DfE and has called for a review of local authority duties in this area, urging a greater targeting of the criteria and consideration of how an increasingly school-led system can better support the transport needs of students.
