Renewing your free travel pass

Updates for academic year 2023/24

If your child qualified for a free travel pass for the previous academic year you do not need to submit a new application.

Entitlement to a free travel pass is reviewed annually, and you will be notified before the start of term if your child will continue to be granted for the new academic year.

Claim codes will be issued by email by 1 September 2023 to enable you to order the necessary pass and top up your existing travel card. 

Further details are available on how to top up your existing pass.

However, if there has been a change in your circumstances, please notify our office immediately as this may impact your child’s entitlement and passes will be cancelled if no longer eligible.
