An initial review of the Learner Travel (Wales) Measure took place in 2020/2021. From the initial review it was a clear that a more detailed review of the Measure was required due to the complex nature of learner’s travel needs.

Work has now commenced on this wider review of the Measure which, working in partnership with local authorities, the industry as well as children and young people, will identify the barriers as well as opportunities and innovative approaches to learner travel. Key findings, learnings and examples of innovative good practice from local, national and international research will inform advice due to be submitted for me to review this summer.   

The Bus Bill, which we will be bringing to the Senedd in early 2024, offers us an opportunity to look at the provision of school transport within a restructured bus service delivery model across Wales; we anticipate that alongside the Taxi and Private Hire Vehicle Bill, this will provide us with a robust legislative framework in which we can embed a safe, equitable, affordable and accessible learner transport offer.

It is vital that we take the time to gather the evidence and work with partners to develop sustainable and affordable policy options for all learners in Wales.
