Transport for students

Depending on your location and how you travel to your place of education, you could be eligible for cheaper transport.

If you need to cut your travel costs

If your child has to get a bus to school, you might be able to get help covering the costs.

If you’re a college or sixth-form student, you can apply for subsidised transport through your local council.

One of the most flexible and low-cost ways to travel the country is by coach, which is even cheaper for students and those aged 16-26 through a young person’s coach card.

If you’re 18 or over, a student and living in a London borough, you can get discounted travel with an Oyster photocard. Through this, you can get discounted Travelcards and buy discounted bus and tram passes.
