  1. Intro details
    1. This form will expire after one hour (from when this page opened).
    2. Who can renew?

      If you are currently getting help with home to school or college transport from South Tyneside Council, you can use this form to renew that help for the next academic year.

      The next academic year starts in September 2020.

      What does help with school or college transport include?

      • Personal Transport Budget (help towards the cost of getting your child to and from school or college)
      • Bus pass for public transport
      • Independent travel training
      • Taxi or mini bus travel

      When is it appropriate to apply for support to get my child to school?

      Applications are processed with a focus on developing the independence of the child. With this in mind, taxi and mini bus transport will only be considered in cases where all other forms of support are thought to be unsuitable. Please think carefully before requesting a taxi as there may be a more effective way we can support your family.

      Before you start

      To complete this form, you will need:

      • an email address
      • details of your child and their school
      • name, address and contact number for at least two parents or carers
