Free school transport

Families on low incomes

If you get maximum Working Tax Credit or your child is entitled to free school meals, they'll get free school transport if they're:

  • 8 to 11 years old, attending their nearest suitable school and it is at least 2 miles away
  • 11 to 16 years old, attending the nearest suitable school and it is 2 to 6 miles away - as long as there are not 3 or more suitable schools nearer to home
  • 11 to 16 years old, attending a school on the basis of faith and it is 2 to 15 miles away - if it's the nearest school due to your religion or belief
