With the raising of the school participation age, young people
will be obliged to remain in school, college training or
apprenticeships until they are 19. They often have to travel
significant distances to get to the school or college with the most
appropriate course for their needs, but the proposed annual charge
of £400 for the Kent 16+Travel Card is simply unaffordable
We therefore call upon Kent County Council to extend the proposed Young Person’s Travel Pass scheme to include 16-19 year-olds for the same annual cost of £200. We also request that the annual charge for under16s entitled to free school meals remains at £50.
