School transport - apply for reimbursement of costs


If your child attends a school in Saxony-Anhalt that is not within walking distance, the district or the independent city offers a transport option. In most cases, the schools are involved in local public transport (e.g. bus or train) or there is a school bus.

If no transport is organised by the district or independent city, you can have the travel costs between the main residence and the nearest school reimbursed.

You are entitled to transport or reimbursement of costs in the following cases:

  • Attendance at a general education school up to the 10th grade or
  • Attending a special school or
  • participation in the school-based basic vocational training year or in the vocational preparation year, and,
  • exceeding the minimum distance, or
  • Regardless of a minimum distance, in the presence of a disability.

In certain cases, there is also a right to reimbursement of transport costs if the school attended is not the nearest school.

  • Your child lives in Saxony-Anhalt and goes to school here.
  • The district or the independent city does not offer a school bus or school transport.

In addition, other requirements must be met, such as the minimum distance from the school. The competent body will advise you.

  • Application
  • Original tickets

The competent authority will tell you which documents you need.

If the travel expenses for the previous school year are to be reimbursed, please submit the application by 30.09. of each year.

An action against the decisions of the administrative districts or independent cities can be filed with the competent administrative court.

Please contact the district or the independent city of your place of residence.

The necessary forms are issued by the districts or independent cities via the schools.

Some districts and independent cities also make these available on the Internet.

  • You apply to your district or independent city for reimbursement of your child's travel expenses.
  • The competent authority will check whether you can get a refund.
  • If this is the case, you will be reimbursed for the costs of school transport.

In the following cases, you are entitled to a cost reduction (pro rata reimbursement of travel expenses). In these cases, a co-payment of EUR 100 per school year must be paid:

  • Attendance at a grammar school, a comprehensive school, a community school or a free Waldorf school from the 11th grade or
  • Attendance at a vocational school, a technical school, a technical secondary school or a technical grammar school.
