Changes to 16+ Travel Card

It is time to get your Kent 16+ Travel Card

If you’re aged 16 – 19 and in full time education then you may well qualify for the scheme.
Apply by 13 July 2018 to make sure your pass is ready for the next term.

When you can use it

The pass offers unlimited bus travel at any time of the day 7 days a week. It is valid from the start of the school year in 2018 to 31 August 2019.


£400 for a full year or split the cost and buy 2 half year passes.
You can check with your learning provider to see if they can offer some further support with the cost of the pass.

How to apply

All applications and payments are now made direct to KCC.

You will need all of your details (name, address, establishment etc), a passport style photograph in the right format and a credit or a debit card.

Alternatively you can apply by post.


After you apply

Once your application has been processed, you will receive an email or letter as confirmation.

Getting to school or college on the first day of term

We no longer send letters for travel on the first day of term.

You will be able to travel without one and the pass will be available to collect from school or college at the start of term.
