KCC Travel Saver

The KCC Travel Saver is a bus pass that can save parents and pupils up to 50% on the cost of travel to and from school. To apply you must be:

  • a resident of Kent (whose household pays Council Tax to a Kent district/ borough council for Kent County Council services)
  • at school in years 7-11, whether the school is in Kent or not.

For most children’s journeys this pass will save you around 50% of what you might pay for an annual season ticket from a bus operator.

September bus pass applications

We are aware that some customers who applied by our recommended July deadline and who have opted to pay by Direct Debit instalments still haven’t received their Travel Saver passes. This is due to unforeseen difficulties we have experienced in processing these applications.

We are very sorry about this and we are working hard to make sure students get their passes as soon as possible.

If you have applied for your pass within the past month, it could take up to 28 working days to process your application from the date you applied.

If you have already called or emailed us, we will reply but it could take up to a week to do so while we prioritise getting passes out to schools. We thank you for your patience.
