Reduced bus fares for children and young people

From 3 September 2023, up to 3 children accompanied by a fare-paying adult will travel for free, and anyone aged from 5 to 16 will pay no more than £1 for a single fare when travelling unaccompanied by an adult on any bus journey which starts and ends within the City of York boundary.

Young persons aged 11 to 16 need to show proof of age, such as a YOzone card, when requested to do so by the driver. You can apply for a free YOzone card online.

The £1 child single fare will be cheaper than the majority of single fares currently being offered, however for daily bus users, weekly or monthly child tickets will in many cases continue to offer the best value.

The discounted fares are available on all local bus services within the City of York boundary, including Park & Ride.

Dedicated school services, coach services, race day shuttle services or tour buses are not included in the offer.

Note that under 5s can already travel free of charge on the city’s local bus network.
