Home to school travel assistance

Advice for parents

All children under 16 and 16-17 year olds (and some 18 year olds) in full time education can travel free on bus and tram services.

Pupils aged under 16 who, in the judgment of the Director of Children's Services, have an unreasonable journey to school using bus or tram services, may be entitled to assistance with the cost of rail and/or underground travel to and from school.
