Apply for reimbursement of expenses related to the transport of pupils due to disability

The transport of pupils is carried out by the districts and towns without districts. In principle, all pupils are entitled to transport pupils if they are resident in Rhineland-Palatinate and the way to school is unreasonable without the use of a means of transport. For the reasonableness of the school route, the type and degree of disability must also be taken into account, irrespective of the type of school visited. In the case of the transport of pupils with special educational needs on the school bus, accompanying persons must be provided if this is necessary according to the type and degree of disability. In the event of additional disability-related expenses, an individual entitlement to integration assistance benefits may exist in individual cases.

Please ask the school board of the district or the district-free city for any documents to bring. It is also possible that the school itself can provide information on this.


The application forms are provided by the promoters of the school transport (district or district-free city).

Preconditions
