KCC Travel Saver and 16+ Travel Saver

Low impact

As schools have now reopened and bus services have resumed, you can continue to use your Travel Saver pass. Please check our information on using school transport during the pandemic before you travel.

Public bus services

Now that schools have reopened, all public bus services should also be running. Some operators are experiencing staff shortages, so please check with the bus operator before you travel.

All of our transport providers are using government guidance to make public transport safe for you to use. For more information about some of the changes that are in place, read our page on using school transport during the pandemic.

Bus passes for older or disabled people

Low impact

From Monday 8 March, passes can no longer be used before 9:30am during the week. This is because the space will need to be prioritised for children travelling to school.

We will automatically renew your older person’s bus pass 2 weeks before your current one expires if you have used it:

  • in Kent
  • since 1 June 2019 (this is an extended cut off date to reflect the fact that people will have travelled less over the past year)
  • on a bus with an electronic pass reader (smart bus).

Kent Karrier

Low impact

Our Kent Karrier services continue to operate as normal. To help you get to vaccination appointments, a number of vaccination centres have been added to the list of destinations. Please check with your operator for more details.
