To check if you qualify please contact your local council, details are on our Zero Fare Pass - Local Council Contacts page.
A Zero Fare Pass is valid for free travel Mondays to Fridays until 7pm on the days when your school is open (term time only).
If the school is outside South Yorkshire, the pass will only be valid as far as the county boundary.
If you have checked with your local council and you don't qualify then you can purchase a pass privately through SYPTE.
Please visit the Zero Fare Pass - Private Purchase page for details.
Applications submitted to the local council by 30 June 2020 will be processed and sent to home addresses during August in time for the start of term in September.

All replacements cost £7.00 and will be posted to your home address by First Class post.
