Trans­port rules un­fair to many

Harefield Gazette - - OPINION - HAZEL HUNTER Ad­dress with­held

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.
