P-05-746 Free School Transport for All Children in Wales



This petition was submitted by Rachel Griffiths, having collected 194 signatures.


Text of the Petition

I am setting this petition up for all children in Wales to receive free school transport to and from school where they fall within the catchment area.


Additional Information

To give an example, due to UK Government cuts to public sector funding and the resultant need for the council to make substantial savings, Rhondda Cynon Taff council now want to make charges from September 2016 of £285 per annum per child for transport to and from school or £95 for those receiving free school meals.  Cuts could be made elsewhere e.g. are plants in the community really needed?
