Q. What do I need to think about to help my child to travel safely?
Dedicated school buses are available to help children and young people get to schools and colleges across South Yorkshire. Information about school buses, including timetables, passes, and how pupils can help everyone to travel safely, is available at travelsouthyorkshire.com/school-buses
With a Zoom Under 16 or Zoom Travel Pass, young people can pay a concessionary 80p fare per single journey by cash or contactless. Please try to have the exact change where possible if you’re paying by cash. These passes also entitle young people to pre-purchase value for money tickets, such as a GetAbout ticket, which may be better value for money if they need to travel regularly. No pass means full fare.
You can apply for a pass at travelsouthyorkshire.com/en-gb/ticketsandpasses
A small number of dedicated school services don’t have the technology to scan passes for cashless payment. You can check at www.sytravelmaster.com/getabout-exclusions whether your school bus accepts GetAbout tickets.
