Transport assistance for children and young people with additional needs

Personal Transport Budgets

Personal Transport Budgets are an alternative to offering transport for a child/young person, giving you control of your own transport. If you meet the criteria for transport and wish to make your own travel arrangements, this is a great option for many families.

Families can choose how they spend the money, and may wish to join with a family member, friends, or groups of families to provide transport to children or young people in their group.

Your personal payment will depend on the number of days your child/young person is travelling, and the distance from home to school/college. There is no cost to the young people or parents/carers who are eligible for this type of option.
