Medway youth pass

Young people who live in Medway can apply for a Medway Youth Pass, which allows them to travel at half the adult fare when travelling on any local bus service.

There are two types of pass:

  • Under 16-years-old which is valid for 3 years or until the young person finishes Year 11, whichever is sooner.
  • 16 – 18 years old (Year 12 onwards) which will expire when the young person reaches the end of the academic year after their 18th birthday.

Journeys must start in Medway and can be to any destination in Medway or Kent.

How to apply

Application forms are available from Contact Points or Council community hubs.

Please complete the form, sign it, attach a passport-sized photograph of the young person and send it to:
Medway Council, Student Services, Gun Wharf, Level 3, Dock Road, Chatham, Kent, ME4 4TR.

There is a £10.00 administration fee. This can be paid by card payment online or at one of our community hubs.

New passes will be issued within four weeks of application. However, this period may be longer over the summer seasonal peak.

Request a replacement pass

No application form or photograph is needed, but you must pay a £10.00 administration fee.

Make sure you have paid the administration fee online before requesting a replacement and quote the reference number when filling out the above request form.
