Student fare card scheme

Bus and train student fare card schemes closed

No further applications are being taken for the current 2018/19 academic year.

In January 2019 the Department for Transport announced the launch of a new Railcard which will benefit 16-17 year olds. The Railcard offers 16-17 year olds a 50% discount on rail travel. No further detail has been released and there is no indication of when the Railcards will be available to purchase. Please visit the Railcard website for further details.

Therefore the decision has been taken to open the online application system for just the 2019/20 Surrey bus student fare card scheme on 1 August 2019.

The 2019/20 Surrey train student fare card will be available at a later date once the Department for Transport and South Western Railways have communicated their next steps.

Please keep an eye on our webpages for further updates; if you have any queries, please contact the Student Fare Card Team:

The student fare card scheme gives students aged 16-18 who live in Surrey reduced rate bus and/or rail travel to schools and colleges.
