Applications for new passengers only - valid for any school year

This form is not date limited and can be used for any school year for new applications only. For renewals of existing registrations, see below.

To make an application select one of the links below. You will download a form saved to your PC and this is opened and completed in any suitable word procesor application. You do not need to print it out. Full instructions on how to return this to us by email are on the form. You are advised to use a laptop/desktop PC - a mobile or tablet device may work, but results can be variable.

When we have processed your application, we will write to you or email you with a date to start travelling. Generally, if your application is received office hours Monday through to Thursday morning each week, your child will start travelling from the next Monday week commencing. Applications received after that time will be held over and processed to start the Monday week after. There are no exceptions to this due to the distribution of the drivers' registers every Thursday morning.

Please do not use this form to apply for statutory zero fare (see below).

Special applications: see below regarding services DR1 and WG2 Dane Royd School.

As at 2nd September 2022, the following services are at full capacity and so no more applications will be accepted. You can still send in an application, but we will keep this on file until such time capacity becomes available.

The following services, as at 2nd September 2022 are very close to full capacity (over 50 allocated) and are expected to reach full capacity very quickly: C30 St Marys Halifax, K71 NLC, P64 Sandal.

Renewals for September 2022

There is no need to re-apply. All current passengers (who are not moving onto secondary school and who are not statutory zero fare) will be automatically rolled over. For WG2 Dane Royd, see below. We will confirm all renewals by email around mid August 2022.

DR1 and WG2 Dane Royd School

To travel on these routes your child must live in Woolley Grange for the WG2 or Notton and Woolley for the DR1 and qualify for statutory zero fare. For new passengers, two separate applications must be made - one to Wakefield Council for the zero fare status here and one to ourselves using the form listed above. Wakefield Council will process the zero fare element then send an approval to us. When we are in receipt of both applications, we will issue a zero fare Boarding Card valid on the DR1 or WG2.

For renewals for September 2022, we will only roll over a current passenger's registration when we are in receipt of confirmation of their zero fare status from Wakefield Council. There is no need to re-apply to us at WYCA as we will re-use your current registration details however you must refer to Wakefield Council to renew your zero fare status.
