Application periods

There are two periods for new transport applications to be assessed. You only need to apply once for the academic year – the assessment will cover the remainder of that academic year as long as the criteria are met and charges paid.

The application periods are:

  • Autumn term = applications received between 1 March and 30 September
  • Spring term = applications received between 1 October and 31 January

Where an application is received after the Autumn term closing date (30 September), transport will be considered for January onwards.

Example case: An application is received on the 4 November. Transport would be considered for a spring term start. A fresh application would not be required for summer term, only payment of the charge.
