Transport rules unfair to many
I READ with interest your article ‘Transport anger for autistic student’ (Gazette, October 7).
To my knowledge this isn’t the only case relating to a Hillingdon student being unable, through no fault of their own, to access further education because they live within a three-mile limit of Uxbridge Technical College.
If a student is unable to travel unaccompanied by foot or transport, surely the distance is irrelevant.
Many other students living outside the three mile restricted limit had problems obtaining transport and only did so on appeal.
Could others affected by this policy contact your paper and/or their local councillor to highlight and hopefully solve this unfair legislation.
