Eligiblity is simple

If you’re aged 16 and 17, you’re eligible!

The 16-17 Saver is valid for one year or until your 18th birthday, whichever comes first.

If you buy a Season ticket before your 16-17 Saver expires, you can keep using the season ticket for up to four months after the expiry. The two expiry dates are shown on your 16-17 Saver.

You can buy your 16-17 Saver from 20 August 2019. You'll need to have the following when you apply:

Evidence of age - a valid UK driving licence, passport or national ID card

A good quality digital passport-style photo of you

Debit or credit card for payment

If you don't have any of the above forms of ID, you can upload a scan of your birth certificate or a Government-approved PASS card instead. Please note that applications using these forms of ID will take a little longer to process.

If you experience any issues during your online application, you can call our customer support team on 0345 301 1656 for help. We're available from 7am to 10pm every day of the year (except Christmas day).
