Students in receipt of a Hertfordshire County Council Saver Card are able to purchase a child ticket up to the age of 18 and in full-time education. Saver Cards are issued and purchased from Hertfordshire County Council. You will be asked to produce your Saver Card with your ticket each journey; failure to do so will result in full adult fare being applied.


How it works

An annual ticket can be purchased on a monthly basis via Direct Debit for a full academic year benefiting from the discount of an annual ticket with the added convenience of paying monthly.

  • For payments commencing 15th of November 7 further payments will follow
  • For payments commencing 15th December, 6 further payments will follow
  • FINAL deadline to arrange your direct debit is 1 December 2016
  • Monthly payment is divided into an academic 10 month year. For example an annual ticket cost of £609.00 will equal to £60.90 per month.
  • The direct debit payment will be taken on the 15th of each month
  • Your ticket will commence on the 25th of the same month and expire midnight on the 24th of the following month. This will run continually each month until the last payment being June 15th.
