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

  • Attendance at a general education school up to the 10th grade or
  • Attendance at a special school or
  • Participation in a basic vocational training year or a vocational preparation year and,
  • Exceeding the minimum distance or
  • Irrespective of the minimum distance, in the case of a disability.

In certain cases, there is also an entitlement to reimbursement of transportation costs if the school attended is not the nearest school.

  • Your child lives in Saxony-Anhalt and goes to school here.
  • No school bus or school transport is provided by the district or independent city.

Other requirements must also be met, for example the minimum distance to the school. The responsible office will advise you.
