Bus Passes for Under Twenties
If you are aged between 11 and 19 and live in Staffordshire a 'Your Staffordshire Card' will allow you to travel for a discount price on any single bus journey which starts or ends in Staffordshire*.
Staffordshire County Council continues to heavily subsidise this scheme to allow young people to benefit from cheaper travel.
That's a really cheap bus trip to see your mates, get to school or college or just to get out and go places. And there's more, you can now get great offers from local businesses too!
You can get a card regardless of whether you are at school**, university, are working, or looking to get a job. Be sure to read the terms and conditions before you apply.
Changes to Your Staffordshire Card
From 1 April 2016, holders of under-20s Your Staffordshire Cards will pay £1.30 for each journey made.
There is no change to the fare for holders of the under 16s cards or for under 11 who do not need a card.
