The 16-18 Travel Pass helps young people aged 16 to 18 get around South Yorkshire for less. Your students who were born between 1 September 2003 and 31 August 2004 can apply for a 16-18 Travel Pass online now!

Even though they may not be travelling on public transport right now, they can apply for a pass so they’re ready to go when they do need to travel again. Students who live in South Yorkshire can apply for a 16-18 Travel Pass to prove to bus drivers, tram conductors and ticket sellers that they’re entitled to a concessionary fare on public transport. With a 16-18 Travel Pass they can travel in South Yorkshire for a single fare of 80p per journey on bus or tram, and travel for half price on local Northern trains. They can also buy discounted 1, 7 and 28 day travel tickets for young people. The pass is valid for up to 2 years.

Instructions on how to apply are available at www.travelsouthyorkshire.com/1618/, and we’ve produced a helpful video to show young people how to apply online, which you can view and share here: https://youtu.be/CTl9pqjd0lM.
