School Transport Application Forms and Guidance Notes
Online School Transport Application Form
The online transport application form for the 2013/2014 academic year will be available by clicking on the link below on the 25th April 2013.
From the 25th April you will be required to create your own personal Leicestershire County Council online account using your email address. This will allow you to log on and submit application(s) for your children.
Please ensure that you have read the guidance notes for your choice of scheme carefully before completing the application.
N.B please have your credit/debit card ready as you will be taken to a secure server to submit payment details.
If you are unable to use the online application form or you wish to apply for transport for the 2012/2013 academic year, please contact our Customer Service Centre on 0116 305 0002
Please note, we do not currently have the facility to receive application forms by e-mail.

- Farepaying Places on School Buses

If after you submit a transport application your child/ward doesn't take up their place at college please let us know and we will cancel the transport request. If your child/ward has been issued with a travel pass and you cancel your travel assistance with us you remain responsible for the full value of the travel pass until it is returned to the Authority. Travel passes are to be returned by recorded delivery.
If you cancel any payment plan, but fail to notify us (in writing) that transport is not required we will continue to seek payment
You can view the guidance notes for each transport scheme as a series of Frequently Asked Questions, or if you wish there is a print friendly version of the guidance notes for you to print out. (Please see below)
You may only use the application form to apply for one transport scheme. If you wish to be considered for a second scheme you will need to submit a separate application. If you are unsure which scheme to apply for please contact our Customer Service Centre on 0116 305 0002 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for further advice.
If your child/ward received Voluntary Aided Transport last year and there has been no change of address and/or school and they will be under 16 on the 1st September 2013, you should apply again for the ‘Voluntary Aided’ scheme option.
If your child/ward is going into their second year of 6th form study and qualified for assisted transport last year and there has been no change to their address, school or courses studied, you should re-apply for the 'Assisted Transport for 16 -19 year olds' scheme.
if your child/ward received Farepaying Transport last year and there has been no change of address and/or school and they will be under 16 on the 1st September 2013, or if they will be in their second year of sixth form study and there has been no change of school, address or courses studied, you should apply again for the ‘Farepaying’ scheme option.
School Transport Payments
Please note, Online Recurring Payments, where payment is taken directly from the credit/debit card you register with us, have replaced Direct Debits and are the only method of payment available when you make an online application. Please ensure that you have sufficient funds on your card to cover the one-off or monthly school transport payments. Payment is usually processed on or about the 18th of the month (this will be the 18th September for applications received during the summer).
Please note that outstanding debts will continue to be pursued, even after children have been excluded, and that until the outstanding debt is cleared any subsequent requests for home to school transport for this child or any brothers and sisters will be declined.
