Help with school transport for low income families

Find out about free transport to school and whether your child qualifies.

We need information about you and your child so that we can check to see if your child is eligible to receive assistance with primary or secondary school transport based on low income.

Primary school children aged 8 and above may receive help based on family income only for their nearest school. Secondary school aged pupils may receive help based on family income for one of their three nearest schools. Further information is available on the Free school transport page.
