Travelling with your bus pass

All MY Bus pass holders will need to show their pass at all times on their ASD bus service.

Students will not be allowed to travel on the bus without their bus pass. 

Lost or damaged passes

If a bus pass is lost or damaged at school during the day, ASD will get the child home by checking the list of registered bus pass holders.

You will then need to contact the My Bus Pass team for a replacement and pay the £10 fee. 

The MY Bus Pass team can also advise ASD that a child's bus pass is being replaced to ensure they can continue to travel on the bus. 

If a bus pass is lost or damaged please email mybus@medway.gov.uk or phone 01634 333 455.
