Learning for Life
If your child is moving to a new school or educational establishment in September 2017 and you wish to apply for travel assistance you will need to do this as soon as your placement is confirmed.
To apply for travel assistance you must complete the MTA1 travel assistance form which can be found along with information on eligibility and the types of travel assistance available at
The application should be completed in full either on-line, via the Customer Service Centre on 0300 500 80 80, or by downloading a form and returning it to us at the address on the form with any supporting information as requested. Failure to either complete the form in full or not include supporting information will delay your application.
Once your form is received your child’s eligibility for travel assistance will be assessed. It is important that you complete the application form as soon as possible to prevent any delay in assistance for September. To guarantee that transport is set up at the beginning of term we need to receive applications by July 31st.
