Applying for school travel assistance

Children and young people, including those with special educational needs and disabilities, may qualify for free or assisted transport to and from school or college.

Pupils aged 8 and under may qualify if:

  • You live 2 miles or more from the designated school, which is measured by the shortest, safe walking route when accompanied by an adult

Pupils aged 8 to 16 may qualify if:

  • You live 3 miles or more from the designated school, which is measured by the shortest, safe walking route when accompanied by an adult

If your child or young person is moving to a new education setting in September 2020 and you wish to apply for home to school travel assistance, this will now be done through an online application form.
