Home to school transport options for MCA6 Students from September 2019

If you currently travel on a route operated by Suffolk Passenger Transport and are looking to attend MCA6 in September you may not be aware that transport is NOT automatically provided. Suffolk Passenger Transport currently operates a Post-16 discretionary travel scheme where you can apply for a place by registering with them by the 31st of May at   www.suffolkonboard.com/apply .  If they are able to offer you a place they will send you an invoice. However, if they are unable to offer you transport, and you applied by the deadline of 31 May 2019, they will write to advise you of this before the start of term.

Alternatively, you can travel to MCA6 by public transport. All 16-19 year olds can apply for a free Endeavour Card which is accepted by the majority of bus service providers in Suffolk. This card gives young people a minimum of 25% discount on an adult bus fare anytime. You do not need to be in full-time Post-16 education to benefit from the free Endeavour Card. To find a full list of bus operators that accept the Endeavour card and apply, visit www.endeavourcard.co.uk.  You can also contact bus operators directly to see what ticket options they offer. Details of all operators are available at: www.suffolkonboard.com/operators.
