Children and young people attending the catchment school of their choice are entitled to a free or discount fare travel bus pass if they are:
||Free travel pass if their school is more than two miles walking distance
||Discounted travel if their school is less than two miles walking distance
|Eight and over
||Free travel pass if their school is more than three miles walking distance, until end of educational year in which 16th birthday falls
||Discounted travel pass if their school is less than three miles walking distance, until end of educational year in which 16th birthday falls
||Half price travel between home and school/college up to 22.00 hours Monday to Fridays where bus and train services are available
The walking distance is the shortest route from your home address to your local catchment school and can include footpaths, jitty's and paved areas. This means the walking distance may be shorter than the route by car.
Parents and carers who decide to send their child to a school of their choice are responsible for organising and paying for their child's school transport.
