We can help you arrange your own transport with Direct Travel Payments (DTPs).

DTPs can:

  • pay for fuel costs

  • buy bus or train tickets

  • cover the cost of cycling

  • help with shared transport arrangements

The rate is 40p per mile based on 4 journeys per day and you may be able to claim if your child:

  • is of school age and eligible for free transport

  • Has an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) or statement of special needs and is aged 3-25.

You need to request Direct Travel Payments when applying for travel assistance.
