• Back2School offer

    5% discount on child tickets

Get your back to school ticket early: avoid the queues and save 

Metrobus is offering families 5% off back to school child tickets on a key card or mobile app if they buy them before Sunday 23 August and avoid the last minute rush.  

The bus company’s free child key card offers access to great deals for young people aged between 5 and 16. With this card, you can load tickets straight on to the key card online, use it to accompany child mobile tickets on the app, or to pay a reduced cash fare from the driver. 

To get the discount, all you need is to do is to quote the code ‘BACK2SCHOOL’ online, on our mobile app or in store. If you have more than one child, they all get the discount. 

You can activate* the ticket at a time that works best for you, such as when your child goes back to school.

Metrobus’ Managing Director Martin Harris said: “Get in early and get your first child key card. It is vital so that we can avoid the queues and delays that social distancing will cause due to reduced capacity at our travel shops. That is why we created an added incentive.  

“We know parents and carers have a lot to think about before their children go back to school, rushing around buying school uniform, lunchboxes and school shoes. I hope this goes some way to helping out families before the school term starts.” 

To get your child’s first key card, pop into Crawley or Redhill travel shop with proof of date of birth. Our colleagues can take your child’s photograph – or bring a passport photo - and we will process your card on the spot.  

If your child already has a key card, the bus company is encouraging parents/guardians to top it up online and avoid long queues where travel shops are at reduced capacity.

* Annual tickets require a start date to be set at the point of purchase so we will need to add any unused time on at a later date. If you are unable to use the pass from the start date, simply contact our customer services team who will be happy to do this for you.
