can anyone explain the 3 mile free transport rule to me?!
We live in Tonbrige and my son has been turned down from the free transport pass as we are 2.8 miles away from TWGSB.
Why is it 3 miles? I could understand if the distance was meant to be walking distance but surely they dont expect this to be an acceptable distance by foot?!
I know we are really lucky to get the freedom pass which is Â£50 (i know a lot of parents are paying that per week) but my main issue is that my son will not be allowed on the school bus (i think it drives into the school and out of the car park at the end of the day?) and have to use the public bus for the sake of .2 0f a mile.
Would love to hear from any parents whos sons use either bus and if anyone could enlighten me why there needs to be a cut of point at all! Thanks!
