Boarding Pass

A Boarding Pass is available for school pupils who qualify for free travel on a specific service OR for services where prepaid travel is required.

What is a Boarding Pass?   

A Boarding Pass is available for pupils of school age who qualify for free travel. It entitles the holder to travel free ONLY on the service highlighted on the pass. It is not valid on other bus services.  

How to apply

If you believe you are entitled to free travel, please contact your Local Authority to request an application form. 

Using your card

Simply show the bus driver your Boarding Pass to travel on your designated service. 

Because a Boarding Pass has cash value and guarantees you a place on the bus, this is all you will need to travel.
