16-18 Travel Enhancements Approved

Discounted public transport fares are to be offered to more young people in South Yorkshire, after South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive’s (SYPTE’s) proposals to extend the current concessionary travel scheme for 16-18 year olds were approved by the Sheffield City Region Combined Authority Transport Committee on 8 May.

The enhancements mean that from 1 July all 16 to 18 year olds living in South Yorkshire, including those in apprenticeships and employment, will be able to apply for a 16-18 Travel Pass, which provides access to discounted travel across the region.

The pass will also, for the first time, be valid during August, to allow young people in this age bracket to benefit from reduced travel rates across South Yorkshire, including 80p single fares on bus and tram, half price rail fare on Northern rail services and value for money operator tickets all year round. 

The 16-18 Travel Pass can be applied for from 1 July, online or via a paper application from an Interchange, and can be used as soon as it is received. Unlike the previous 16-18 Student Pass, card holders are no longer required to reapply for their pass after a year, as the enhanced 16-18 Travel Pass is valid for two years, until 31 July of the young person’s second year in further education, apprenticeship or employment.

More information on the new pass, including how to apply, will be made available on the 16-18 Travel Pass page.
