rct logo web

The Council has confirmed that the recent Home to School Transport Consultation is being extended for three weeks. The Council recognises the significance of the proposal for pupils who use and will use home to school transport now or in the future, and the extended consultation provides a further opportunity for those potentially impacted to take part in the consultation. 

There will be further in-person drop in events where officers will be on hand to answer any questions on the proposal and encourage people to take part in in the online survey:

  • Hawthorn Leisure Centre, Hawthorn 29th January 2024, 4pm-7pm
  • Sobell Leisure Centre, Aberdare 30th January 2024, 12pm-2pm, 4pm-7pm
  • Rhondda Fach Leisure Centre, Tylorstown 31st January 2024, 4pm-7pm

This extension is an addition to the previous six-week consultation which ran from November 27, 2023, to January 8, 2024, and provided three in-person opportunities.

The extension will see the consultation reopen on Thursday, 18 January, and will remain open until Thursday, 8 February. If you have previously taken part in the consultation, you do not need to do this again.
