Free Home to School Transport

Does your child qualify?

The East Riding of Yorkshire Council must provide free home to school transport for children if they:

  • are between 5 and 16 years old
  • are attending their nearest suitable school
  • live further away from the school than the statutory walking distance (2 miles for pupils under 8, and 3 miles for those aged 8 plus)

Children also qualify for free transport - no matter what distance they live from school if they are unable to walk for any of the following reasons:

  • they have SEN
  • they have a disability or mobility problems
  • there is no safe walking route

The local authority has to make travel arrangements where a child cannot reasonably be expected to walk, accompanied as necessary, in reasonable safety.

Children from Low Income Families

A 'low income' family is one whose children are entitled to free school meals or whose parents receive the maximium Working Tax Credit.

Secondary school pupils (11 to 16 years old) from low income families are entitled to free school transport if they go to:

  • a suitable school between 2 and 6 miles away from their home address, as long as there are not 3 or more suitable schools nearer to home
  • the nearest school chosen on the grounds of religion or belief, and the school is between 2 and 15 miles away from their home address

Children with SEN or Disabilities

If your child has a statement of SEN and has transport requirements written in to it, the local authority must provide them.
