If you wish to renew a 2019-20 zero fare Boarding Pass or School Pass for the new school year 2020-21, the process to follow depends upon the criteria of your award.

Distance award - you do not need to do anything as we will take care of your renewal automatically. However, if you have since moved house or changed schools, you must make a new application using the links above.
