New online application form for Home to School Transport

We have made some changes to the online forms for all aspects of Home to School Transport applications.  This is to simplify the process for applicants and to make our forms accessible to all website visitors. 


Forms that were on the pages shown below (on both the Birmingham City Council and Local Offer websites) will now be replaced by a single online form, accessible from both websites and linked from here: https://www.birmingham.gov.uk/xfp/form/902.  The online form requires key information for both SEND Eligibility and Risk Assessment to be entered and uploaded and provides the applicant with a reference number.


As of 1st December 2021, parents and carers will only be able to apply for Home to School Transport using the link : https://www.birmingham.gov.uk/xfp/form/902.  These current forms (shown below) will no longer be valid for applying for transport, however the new link will be on the pages listed.
