The KCC 16+ Travel Saver is a bus pass which can save parents and students up to 50% on the cost of bus travel to and from school and college. To apply for a pass you must be:

  • a resident of Kent (whose household pays Council Tax to a Kent district or borough council for Kent County Council services)
  • 16 to 19 years old and in academic years 12 to 14 (to be eligible your date of birth must be between 1 September 2004 and 31 August 2006)
  • attending a participating school, college, work, learning provider or apprenticeship provider.

For most students, this pass will save you around 50% of what you might pay if you bought an annual season ticket from a bus operator.

The KCC 16+ Travel Saver is valid at any time of the day and on any day of the year, including evenings, weekends and school holidays.
