The National Learner Transport Policy has been presented to parliament. Transportation of learners to their respective schools has always been a key challenge confronting government in South Africa. The department has through various studies, such as the National Household Travel Survey of 2013, and the interactions with affected stakeholders, noted that most learners have difficulty in accessing schools in both urban and rural settings. The development of this learner transport policy aims to address the challenges of accessibility and safety of learners. The National Learner Transport Policy was developed in collaboration with the Department of Basic Education and other stakeholders.
