How to apply for travel support

Each request for a home to school or college transport is considered on an individual basis.

If you think your child is eligible for free or assisted support, or you would like further help and guidance about whether they qualify for supported travel, you can contact the Travel Co-ordination Service.

Once your child's school place has been confirmed, you can apply for travel support using our application form. We recommend that you submit your application as soon as possible to allow the Travel Co-ordination team to plan the most appropriate transport options.

When we've received your application

Once we've received your application form, it will be processed and we'll contact you with the outcome. Depending on the needs of the student and the travel support option that has been agreed, it can take up to 30 days for travel support to start.

We aim to have all transport arrangements for the start of the new school year in September finalised before the summer holidays. For applications received after the start of the summer holidays, we cannot guarantee travel support for September.
