Transportation and Children Who Have Disabilities. Alliance Action Information Sheets
Technical Assistance ALLIANCE for Parent Centers
The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) includes transportation within its definition of "related services." This means that students with Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) have the right to receive special transportation services if it is needed. Transportation and assistance may be provided to a child whose disability requires the child to: (1) go to and from school; (2) travel between schools; or (3) move around inside of school buildings or around the school grounds. Some students with disabilities need special equipment such as separate or adapted buses, lifts and ramps. This paper presents information on what parents need to know about transportation for their children.
