Kent PLUS tickets

Does your child have a Young Person's Travel Pass or a free travel pass from Kent County Council?

You can extend these passes and get unlimited travel in Kent, by buying a Stagecoach Young Person’s Travel PLUS or Scholar's PLUS ticket.

What is a Young Person's Travel PLUS ticket?

Kent County Council offer a   Young Person's Travel Pass for travel between 06:00 and 19:00 Monday to Friday, until 31 July. 

It costs £280 for the year or £140 for half a year.

Anyone in years 7 to 11 can extend their child’s Young Persons Travel Pass and make it valid at anytime by buying a Stagecoach Young Person's 

Travel PLUS ticket.  These tickets are valid after 19:00 on weekdays, all weekend, and during August.  These  cost £30 for the year.

Young Person's Travel PLUS tickets can only be used by children who already have a Young Persons Travel Pass. They will need
to scan their Young Persons Travel Pass every time they use their PLUS ticket.

What is a Scholar's PLUS ticket?

If your child is entitled to free travel to and from school, they will be issued with a free bus pass from Kent County Council.
This pass (also known as a Scholar's Pass), allows free travel for one journey, to and from school.

You can extend your child’s free pass to get unlimited travel by buying a Stagecoach Scholars PLUS ticket. It offers unlimited
travel on all Stagecoach buses in Kent.  These cost £100 for the year.

Your child must show their free pass when they use their Scholars PLUS ticket.
