How the scheme works

The KCC 16+ Travel Saver can be used from when you receive it until 31 August 2024.

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. There are no restrictions on the number of journeys that you can make.

Bus routes

The majority of public bus services are not managed or funded by us, but by the individual bus companies in Kent.

Each bus company provides timetables for their services so that you can plan your journey ahead of time. Please visit the bus provider's website for maps, routes, ticket prices and any service disruptions.

Outside of Kent: you can use your pass to travel to counties bordering Kent if the journey starts or ends in Kent. You cannot use it on London buses.

Medway: you can use your pass if your journey starts or ends within the Kent County Council administrative area, but you cannot use your pass to make journeys from one Medway point to another Medway point.

Behaviour of pass holders

At all times pass holders are expected to follow:

If you do not, your pass may be taken away or you may even be banned from travelling on certain buses. Read the KCC 16+ Travel Saver terms and conditions.

If a KCC 16+ Travel Saver is used fraudulently it will be withdrawn and people who make or allow fraudulent travel will be banned from the scheme.

Passes will also be confiscated immediately if the pass holder lives outside Kent and no refund will be offered.

Problems and complaints with bus services

We do not have overall control over bus services or bus operators.

The KCC 16+ Travel Saver does not entitle any student to travel on a particular service, does not guarantee space on any vehicle and cannot be accountable for problems with the vehicle reliability.

Problems regarding the bus services should be directed to the relevant bus operator.
