You should now have received a letter confirming your child’s transport arrangements for September 2018.
The letter would have been accompanied with a valid bus pass giving access to our contracted routes (where applicable). Download all the pick up locations and times of the transport assistance offered by Telford and Wrekin Council.
If you have not received confirmation of your child’s transport arrangements for September 2018 then please contact the Transport team as soon as possible.
The Council looks to parents and carers to make arrangements for their children to travel safely to their chosen or allocated school where possible and only where we have a statutory duty to do so, will the Council provide funded travel assistance. If you are unable to transport your child to school and believe you are eligible for support from the Council under our statutory duty, please complete the online transport application.
Do I need to re-apply?
- If you are already in receipt of transport assistance and have moved house since you initially applied or your child is moving school you must re-apply as your eligibility could have changed.
- Parents/carers for children over the age of 16 must re-apply for assisted transport every academic year.
- Paper applications are no longer accepted and all applications must be made through the online transport application.
- Due to eligibility checks that are undertaken when considering an application, it can take up to 20 working days to process.
