Applications for the next academic year (2024/25) will open in June. Do not submit your application yet if you are applying for a pass for the start of the school year in September.

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 2005 and 31 August 2007)
  • 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.

Funded by UK government

The price of the KCC Travel Saver has been frozen at last year's price thanks to funding from UK Government.
