Under Fives (Early Years learners)
Children aged under five years old can travel free of charge on public transport in South Yorkshire but they should be accompanied by a responsible person.
Free transport is not usually provided by the Council for children under five attending early years provision, nursery or a primary school/academy.
However, if your child has an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) your child's individual transport needs will be assessed and suitable transport assistance may be recommended.
There will be a contributory charge for using any of the Council's contracted services unless a family is below the income threshold of £16,190 per year.
If you feel your child may qualify for transport assistance because of their physical or medical needs and/or disabilities please complete the enquiry form:
