School travel passes

COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Latest news and updates.

We will provide free travel passes to pupils who meet the criteria set out in the Coventry Travel assistance policy.

Parents/carers are responsible in law, for ensuring that their children attend school regularly.

If a parent/carer exercises their right to choose a school other than the nearest suitable school, the Council does not have a duty to provide travel assistance. In these circumstances parents/carers will be required to make their own travel arrangements.

West Midlands Travel (National Express) – Update for 2020/21

Please note for the academic year 2020/21 National Express will now be moving away from paper passes and switching to a Swift card online system.

This will improve the service you get in the following ways:

  • Term plus passes can be used to travel to and from school but also during evenings and weekends
  • Passes will now be sent direct to your home address rather than being collected from your child’s school
  • If students lose their pass replacement Swift cards are available for £5 and can be sent out the same day or next working day

The new system to order passes is expected to be available from mid-August.

We will be in touch with anyone who has had confirmation that they are entitled to a National Express pass after this point with instructions on how to get your child’s pass.

Travel DeCourcey - Update for 2020/21

For any new or existing applicants who have applied for a Travel DeCourcey pass we are still awaiting details of the form that you need to complete and return to Travel DeCourcey along with your child's photograph for them to process your pass for the academic year 2020/21. 

We are expecting an update in early August once we have received the revised form you will be sent a confirmation letter and the form which you should forward to Travel DeCourcey. Once you have supplied the completed application along with a photograph please allow up to 14 days before checking if the pass has arrived at the school.
