£1 bus fares for 18s and under in Central Bedfordshire

July 10, 2024

Great news for anyone aged 18 and under (and those who live with them!). There is now a new scheme known as the YP Card, which allows young people to ‘get around for a £1’. It means they now travel around Central Bedfordshire and to nearby towns and cities for a maximum fare of just £1 per single journey.

The free credit-card-sized pass is available to young residents aged 18 and under who can apply for a YP Card through Central Bedfordshire Council’s self-service portal. Two types of YP Cards are available: a green card for children and young people up to their 16th birthday, and an orange card for 16 to 19-year-olds. The YP Card allows unlimited travel at a discounted fare of £1 per journey.

Not only is this great value but there are no travel time restrictions too. The YP Card is valid 24/7 and can be used for travel to and from school, college, or leisure activities. To enjoy the £1 fare, show the YP Card to the bus driver when boarding. You won’t be eligible for the discounted fare without the pass, so make sure you get yours today!

Applying for the YP Card bus pass is simple and quick. For those under 16, a parent, guardian, or carer can apply on their behalf. If you’re aged 16 to 19, you can apply for your YP Card yourself. Upload a photo, proof of age and contact information. Check out the full T&Cs on the CBC website.

The lower fares are aimed at helping young people get around Central Bedfordshire and beyond more affordably, to places of education, training and jobs, shopping, seeing friends and family. The YP Card is just one of the many fantastic deals that make bus travel a budget-friendly and environmentally-conscious choice. Hop on board and discover how easy and affordable it can be to get around!
