3 months ago Thu 16th Nov 2023

Double Decker Metrobus at bus stop

From Sunday 19th November 23, there will be new tickets available to under 16s in Surrey, supported by Surrey County Council’s Bus Service Improvement Plan funding. Holders of an Under 16 Surrey Link Card will now be able to purchase a single journey capped at £1.00, and a return capped at £2.00 on any route which is not primarily for transport to or from school. These tickets will be available from the bus driver on boarding the bus, and can be purchased either with cash or with a contactless payment card.

Please be aware that these tickets can only be issued to holders of a green coloured Under 16 Link Card. Other child ID can only be used for normal child single and returns, and blue 16-20 Link cards can only be used for 16-20 Link tickets.

As these tickets are only available on routes which are not primarily for school transport, they are not available for sale on routes 324, 609, 611, 612, 617, 619, 624, 657, 658, 695 or 866.

Link cards are only issued to Under 21s living in Surrey, and can be used for any trip that starts, ends, or is wholly within the Surrey County Council area.
