Apply for travel assistance


The deadline for transport applications for September 2022 was 30 April 2022. If you missed the deadline, apply as soon as possible if your child is:
• moving into reception, year 7 or year 12 (even if they are not moving schools)
• changing school (any school year)

3. If your application is approved

When we agree to provide travel assistance, we then consider the best level of assistance to provide, based on the individual case. This could be a free bus or train pass, a personal travel budget (PTB), minibus or taxi.

It can take up to 10 working days for the transport to be set up after it is approved. A full risk assessment of the child’s or young adult’s needs will be completed. We will consider what we need to keep the child or young adult safe. For example they may need a passenger assistant or medical protocols.

You can read further information for those with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) who are receiving free transport:
