KCC has today launched two new Travel Schemes replacing the current Young Persons Travel Pass and Kent 16+ Travel Card.  

The schemes represent a subsidy from KCC to parents of around £10m each year and means that KCC continues to support parents with the costs of bus travel more than any other Council in the UK outside of London.

A feature of the new scheme is the ability for parents to pay for the pass through a series of instalments*, spreading the cost across 8 months. 

*please note an administration fee applies to these applications is paying by instalment

KCC 16+ Travel Saver

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)

The KCC 16+ Travel Saver is available to students aged 16-19, living in Kent and in Full-Time education. It offers the same benefits as the current Kent 16+ Travel Card enabling parents the opportunity to halve the costs of bus travel rather than buying a ticket direct from operators.
