16+ Travel Saver
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.
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.
The pass costs £400** and offers unlimited bus travel at all times of the day, 7 days per week for the whole academic year.
** please note a £10 administration fee applies to these applications is paying by instalment **
Applications can be made from 3rd June and students who hold current passes and may want to renew will be contacted to remind them of the need to reapply.
Please find attached copies of a leaflet and a flyer for the scheme. We are asking for your support in informing parents about the changes and urging them to apply as soon as possible and no later than 14th July.
