Information on help with travel costs.
Updated 12th April 2018
Assistance for under 19 and full-time students
If you are studying a further education course, you may be eligible for free or discounted travel, depending on your circumstances. Check out what your local authority offers below. College Bursary application forms are available from the InfoZone.
For the 2017/18 academic year, you can apply for up to 90% of your travel costs or £10 per day (whichever is cheaper), forms available from the InfoZone. Funding is based on household income, where you live and whether you receive any help from any other source.
If you are aged 16, 17 or 18 on 31 August 2017, you should apply to your local council before the College bursary if you meet their criteria.
