Any changes made to under 18s concessions in London will ensure that any child eligible for free home to school travel under the Education Act 1996 will still receive this. The Department is carrying out an Equalities Impact Assessment which will help consider categories of children that should continue to receive free transport.

My officials are working with the Department for Education, the Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government, Transport for London and London Boroughs on the Equalities Impact Assessment which will be published in due course.
