Apply for relief from the costs of school transportation


If your child attends a school in Saxony-Anhalt that is not within walking distance, the district or independent city offers transportation. In most cases, the schools are integrated into the bus network or a school bus runs.

If no transport is organized by the district or independent city, you can apply for relief for the travel costs between your main place of residence and the nearest school.

Relief means that you will be reimbursed for the costs of school transportation. This only applies up to a certain maximum amount. The maximum amount is determined by the district or city. You must pay a personal contribution of 100 euros for school transport yourself.

Students in dual training are not entitled to relief (training contract with a company, receipt of a training allowance).

If you attend a school outside your place of residence, you are entitled to the most expensive season ticket for the fare zone of your place of residence. You will also have to pay a contribution towards this.

In certain cases, you are also entitled to relief from transportation costs if the school you attend is not the nearest school.
