To obtain child rate season tickets and fares you need a Centro 16 to 18 Photo card.
Application forms are available from your School or College from September each year.
- Applicants waiting for 16 to 18 Photo cards can buy child rate tickets valid for a term or more using them without a photo card but only until the end of September
- Child rate tickets valid for less than a term or child rate cash fares can only be obtained after the 16 to 18 card has been received
- 16 to 18 Photo cards cannot be used to purchase child rate day tickets
The West Midlands Passenger Transport Authority is responsible for many aspects of public transport policy and administration in the West Midlands County. It subsidises bus operators so that they can provide half fares for children and holders of 16 to 18 photo cards at peak times, using cash provided by local Council Tax payers.
