Discounted bus fares for everyone aged from 5 to 25

UPDATE: We've been working in partnership with a number of local colleges and we're now accepting student ID cards from Durham Sixth Form Centre, Gateshead College, Newcastle College, Newcastle Sixth Form College and Sunderland College. These are in addition to the existing forms of ID we've already been accepting. 

Our discounted tickets are available to everyone aged from 5-year-old up to and including 25-year-old - and you can save up to a whopping 43% on the equivalent adult all zones ticket prices. 

Anyone who is or looks 16 or over will need to show ID in order to buy tickets for these discounted prices.
