Apply, renew or appeal school transport
Who we can help
Our home to school transport policy explains who is eligible. We can only provide free transport for those who meet the criteria.
Please complete our travel assistance form if you meet the criteria.
When you should apply
If your child is starting at a new school in September 2021, you must submit your home to school transport application by 30/06/2021 to ensure that any transport will be in place for the start of term September 2021 should you be found eligible.
If your child will be staying at the school they already attend, you will need to reapply for transport assistance by 18/06/2021 to see if this assistance will continue.
Reviews and appeals
If you disagree with our decision you can ask a review. Explain your reasons in writing to:
