Student free transfer bus pass
Students who travel on fare charging bus services may be eligible for a student free transfer bus pass, if they meet certain criteria.
The student is required to travel on more than one fare charging bus service (operated by different bus service providers), between home and school, school and home or both. A free transfer is provided so the student will only pay a fare on the first fare charging bus service on the journey to or from school.
