All children aged between 5 and 16 may qualify for free home to school transport. This will depend on your:
- location (where you live)
- child’s age
- If your child has special educational needs (SEN) or a disability they might also be eligible.
Gateshead Council provide home to school transport for children who live further than the legal walking distance from appropriate neighbourhood school (two miles for primary school and 3 miles for secondary school).
