Travel Policy and information

We like our taxi journey because we are like a family. We bring in cakes for each other, we sing, we talk about the weather, we tell stories to each other. It is so much fun.

For more quotes from young people using our transport service visit our Voice page.

There are around 1,800 pupils transported to schools across Wiltshire who have an Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP). Transport can take the form of a car or a specialised minibuses to cater for wheelchair users. The Assessment and Placement team decide who is entitled to transport and the Passenger Transport Unit are responsible for arranging this transport and the contracts with local transport providers.
