Independent travel training

Independent travel training Increases opportunities both for learning, social and job prospects. It also:

  • increases independence and use of own initiative
  • provides greater freedom to eventually become less reliant of friends and family
  • raises self confidence
  • develops social skills

Southwark has a number of options to promote independent travel.

Monthly training bus

The training bus is a 90 minute interactive journey. Scenarios cover personal and road safety enabling participants to make full use of London's bus network.

The programme was developed with our partners, The Metropolitan Police Safer Transport Team, Arriva, TfL Travel Mentoring Service and Parent Partnership.

Due to COVID-19, the bus is suspended. Please email us for further information
