If you have a significant and permanent disability, you use the National Transportation Service to travel outside the county of Örebro. The purpose of the journey must be recreation, leisure, or other private matter.
The journey using the National Transportation Service must in the first instance be made using scheduled public transport. You are permitted to travel using the Transportation Service if you are unable – despite being helped by an accompanying person – to manage the journey using scheduled public transport.
You need to apply each time you wish to travel. We must receive your application at least 14 days before your travel date. In the lead-up to major public holidays such as Christmas, which is when many people want to travel, the final date for applications is earlier. A decision and all the practical information you require will be sent to you by post.
You may need to supplement your application with a medical certificate.

Price and payment

You pay for your trips with the scheduled public transport as usual. Send the ticket to us after your trip to receive compensation. When traveling with service vehicles, you pay by card or cash to the driver.

At each application, an individual assessment is made of the need for aids. You can take two bags with you on the trip, both if you travel with the scheduled public transport or with a service travel vehicle.
