When you move on to year 7, you will need a bus pass so you can use public transport at a reduced fare.
If you are aged 11-16 and living in South Yorkshire you can have a MegaTravel Card to prove to bus drivers, tram conductors and ticket sellers that you are entitled to travel at reduced cost on public transport. This means:
Read the full information on the MegaTravel card on the Travel South Yorkshire website.
For details of this scheme please contact Barnsley Council on 01226 775656 or visit the website at www.barnsley.gov.uk/micard.
From August 2012, young people up to the age of 18 who live in Barnsley will no longer be entitled to free bus travel within the borough. Under the new arrangements, there will now be a 30 pence fare for every bus journey you make within Barnsley or between Barnsley and the rest of South Yorkshire. However, time restrictions that previously applied to the use of the card have now been lifted, which means that the card can be used at any time and every day, including weekends. Please see the Barnsley Council website for more details. Remember To carry your pass with you at all times when travelling on public transport, even when you’re with an adult or in school uniform. If you don't have your pass, you'll have to pay the full fare.
