At The Sheffield College, we know that travel to and from your place of learning is an important part of your college experience. All of our four campuses are well served by public transport, and there are loads of options for students, from discounted single fares to weekly passes, so that you can get the best deal on public transport.
Whether you study full-time, part-time, or even if you're working, if you're aged between 16 and 18 and live in the South Yorkshire Region then you can apply for a 16-18 Travel Pass. The 16-18 Travel pass covers you on services across South Yorkshire, and is valid even during the summer holidays, so you can use it to get to college, and to visit your mates in the summer!
What discounts can I get?
80p single fares plus 50% off tickets on Northern trains!
What services can I use it on?
All buses and trams within South Yorkshire, plus Northern trains.
When can I apply for a travel pass?
If you were born between 1st September 2001 and 31st August 2002 then you can apply for your pass from 1st May 2018.
