Apply for a KCC Travel Saver

Share the fare with Kent County Council and save up to 50% off the cost of bus travel

You need to apply by 1 August 2021 to get your pass at the start of term in September.

You can apply up until 22 May 2022. The cost remains the same, so the earlier you apply the more monthly instalments you can spread the cost over and the longer you can use it for.

If you have a KCC Travel Pass, use the current pass number to renew.
