Apply for post 16 transport

How to apply

Once you have been offered a sixth form or college place, you may apply for post 16 transport.

The deadline for applications for the 2024-25 academic year is 31 July 2024.

If you miss this deadline, you may still apply, but it may not be processed for the start of the new academic year, and you should make other arrangements.

If you apply mid-year then it is your responsibility to make other arrangements until the application has been processed.

We will then assess your eligibility and contact you as soon as possible with our decision.

If your application is approved, we will send you details and, where appropriate, a bus pass as soon as possible.   

Your child will be allocated a Transport (TRA) number – please keep hold of this as you will need it if you wish to contact us about your transport provision in future.
