The online app is for New applications. If your child is:
- Entering Primary School
- Transferring from Primary to Post Primary School
- Moving into Year 13 – Where your child is returning to Year 13, regardless as to whether they remain in the same school or choose to move to a new school, you must make a new application once you have received confirmation of acceptance into Year 13.
Please note that for a pupil currently residing in the Dixon Plan area and attending a further away school i.e. Banbridge Academy, the system may NOT provide you with an accurate assessment and the Local Transport Office will deal with this on an individual basis.
Change of Circumstances:
You will also be required to re-apply for transport assistance if your child is already in receipt of transport assistance and your circumstances have changed i.e. change of address or change of school, you are required
to reapply for transport assistance. Refer to FAQ Does my child have to reapply each year?
Already in receipt of transport assistance:
If your child is already in receipt of transport assistance and continuing at the same school through Primary 1-7 or Post Primary Year 8-12, you are not required to reapply each year unless there is a change in circumstances. If your child is in receipt of a Translink Sessional Pass, their new pass will be at the school for collection in the first week of term.
