Direct Travel Payments

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.

You may be able to claim if your child:

  • is of school age and eligible for free transport;
  • has an EHCP or statement of special needs and is aged 3-25.

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