Learner Travel Measure receive Royal Approval, 10/12/08 [W]

Plans to expand and improve transport arrangements for pupils and students across Wales, including an all-Wales behaviour code, have received Royal Approval.

The Learner Travel (Wales) Measure, which also places a duty on local authorities to promote access to Welsh Medium Education, was passed by the National Assembly for Wales at the end of September and it now becomes law.

All primary school pupils will be eligible for free travel – if they live two miles or further from the nearest suitable school. The current distance threshold for secondary school pupils, to receive free transport, remains as three or more miles.

Further information on the Measure is available on the National Assembly for Wales website.
