Independent Travel Training

The Independent Travel Training (ITT) service teaches people how to travel safely and independently and is provided by Safe and Active Travel officers within the Highways team.

We work in partnership with individuals to meet their goals while also recognising their achievements and efforts.

What is Travel Training?

It is personalised training to teach a person to travel to and from their destination on their own whether it be school, college or work. Being able to access public transport helps people make their own choices about how they live and what they want to achieve. Our travel trainers work at the pace of the individual every day to develop on their skills and confidence.

School Travel Training Team

We teach young people who currently travel to school in Solihull provided taxis. We work on a one to one basis every day teaching the skills to travel a specified route to and from school. Once a young person has successfully learnt the skills to travel independently; we will provide them with a travel pass which replaces the taxi provision.
