KCC Travel Saver

Young Person's Travel Pass

The Kent Travel Saver (KTS) a school term ticket which is subsidised by Kent County Council. The ticket is purchased from the council and allows children aged 11 to 16 to use the pass to get to school on Arriva buses in Kent.

Additional freedoms introduced on Arriva buses

KTS pass holders can use their passes to travel during the evenings, weekends and during school holidays to travel on any Arriva buses in Kent.

So now schools finished for a few weeks, now you can go out:

  • In the evening
  • Any time during the weekend and bank holidays
  • Right through the school holidays

And all at no extra cost!

No more will you have to rely on others to give you a lift or find the money to pay more bus fares. You can be independent... go when and where you want... no longer reliant on friends and family... and without it costing a single penny more.

Please note that this is a joint initiative between Kent County Council and Arriva, so doesn't apply in the Medway Council area. But pass holders living in Kent can travel to and from Medway if one end of their journey is in Kent.

When using a Kent Young Person Travel Saver card (YPTS), free travel is available on Mondays to Fridays between 6am and 7pm. Passes can be used in school holidays but not in August. Currently outside of this timeframe a £1 fare is available when a Kent YPTS card is presented.
