The Bradford Travel Training Unit is based within Bradford Council and is funded by Bradford Council's Children's Services and Adult & Community Services.
We are a free service and offer one to one Independent Travel Training to individuals over 14 who live in the Bradford District.
Our aim is to teach our trainees how to safely use a specific route on public transport and enable them to access opportunities and services which they would otherwise be unable to do.
We work with children who receive school transport assistance through Passenger Transport Services, or those who for other reasons can not access public transport for school journeys.
Our work with adults is more varied and covers journeys to colleges, work placements, places of employment, and social activities.
All of our staff have undertaken the nationally recognised qualification in Travel Training at NVQ Level 2 and have substantial experience in delivering travel training.
