Direct travel payments

Many parents prefer to make their own arrangements for their child’s travel to and from school/college and are paid a set rate of 40p per mile. You will receive this as a half-termly payment into your bank account.

Direct travel payments are only normally available when no Warwickshire County Council transport operates.

Would you like to be considered for a direct travel payment?*

Payment options

Please make cheques / postal orders payable to Warwickshire County Council If you wish to pay by credit/debit card please call the Education Transport department once you have submitted your application form.

If you are a low-income family you must complete the benefits declaration section and recent proof of benefit must be sent in with this application form – failure to do so will cause delays in processing your application.

If your application for a seat is successful, do you intend to pay for the year in full or by installments by direct debit?*
