Some children can qualify for a free travel pass to help them get to school. This can depend on:
- the age of the child
- distance to travel to school
- evidence of low income
- availability of a safe walking route
the child’s special needs or disabilities
To find out if your child is eligible read the Home to School Transport Travel Policy for children aged 5-16.
Read the Transport Statement for young people over 16.

Transport for young people with a special educational need or disability
There is an assessment process for young people with Special Educational Needs and/or a Disability (SEND). Not every young person with SEND requires home to school transport in a vehicle. Parents may transport their own child to school; some young people are able to access public transport.
Parents or carers of students with SEND who want to apply for specialised free transport assistance will need to complete and submit a travel assistance request form.
If you need help completing the form:
