Coventry City Council will provide free travel passes to pupils aged 5 to 16 who meet the criteria set out in the Home to school transport policy and details on how the process works can be found on the following pages. 

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.
