KCC Travel Saver
Kent County Council (KCC) has recently launched a new Travel Scheme which replaces the Young Persons Travel Pass.
The Travel Saver pass offers unlimited bus travel between 6 am and 7 pm, Monday to Friday. It is valid from the start of the school year in September 2019 to 31 July 2020 but some operators also allow it to be used at other times.
What does it cost?
- £350 for a full year
- £100 for a full year for children who get free school meals.
- Free for young carers, young people in care and care leavers.
- If you are applying for more than two full cost passes, you can get the third and fourth pass free.
Applications can be made from now direct to KCC and need to be applied for by no later than 14th July 2019 in order for the pass to be ready for collection from school at the start of the academic year.
Please note a £10 administration fee applies to these applications is paying by instalment.
