Utdanningsetaten in Oslo kommune (Education Agency in Municipality of Oslo) covers students’ transportation costs. Distance between the child’s home address and the school determines if a student has a right to get this offer.
According to the education act, the distance needs to be at least 4 kilometers for students from 2nd to 10th grade, and 2 kilometers for 1st graders. This offer is only available inside the borders of Oslo.
Expectation from the rules above may happen in cases the child have functional disabilities, temporary injuries, or the school route is dangerous or difficult because of climate or traffic conditions. In some special situations (extra dangerous or difficult school route) might 6-years old children be granted a taxi to the school.
Note: Monthly Ruter# pass needs to be bought by the parents at first. Then this cost will be reimbursed by the municipality by transferring the money to the parents’ bank account. Only students’ costs are covered.
