General information

Statutory criteria

If your child is attending the nearest qualifying school* with places and the safest walking distance** from your home to school is more than two miles, and your child is under eight years of age (or three miles if your child is over eight years of age), you may be entitled to a free concessionary bus pass for them.

*The Department of Education states that a qualifying school with places is a school that provides education appropriate to the age, ability and aptitude of the child.

**The measured walking route is one that an accompanied child may walk safely.
