School transport for 5 to 16 year olds

Your child may be able to get free transport to school if they live further from their school than the walking distance allowed by law or if you’re on a low income. It will depend on where you live and which school your child goes to.

Moving home

Your child may qualify for free school transport if they move home during the school year.  We will reapply the eligibility criteria to work out if your child can get school transport.

Applying for free transport if you move home

You’ll need to contact us to ask for free school transport if your child moves home.

You may be asked to send us evidence of your move and the reasons for it, for example:

  • a council tax bill
  • your tenancy agreement

Further information

For further information, please see the Home to School / College Transport Policy.
