KCC Travel Saver

The KCC Travel Saver is a bus pass that can save parents and pupils up to 50% on the cost of travel to and from school. To apply you must be:

  • a resident of Kent (whose household pays Council Tax to a Kent district or borough council for Kent County Council services)
  • at school in years 7 to 11, whether they go to school in or outside of Kent.

For most children's journeys this pass will save you around 50% of what you might pay for an annual season ticket from a bus operator.

Late applications

If you apply after 13 August you may need to wait up to 4 weeks for us to send the pass to your child's school, and it may not be ready to collect at the start of term.

We don't refund fares your child pays whilst waiting for their pass to arrive or provide letters or emails that they can show the driver.
