Surrey County Council (SCC) has introduced half-price bus fares for all Surrey residents aged 20 and under. The free LINK card can be shown on any bus in the county, except those operated by Transport for London, and will entitle the holder to a 50% discount on single and return journeys as long as they start and/or end in Surrey. It does not include child fares, season tickets or tickets in the £2 bus fare cap scheme.
Matt Furniss is the cabinet member for transport, infrastructure and growth at SCC: “We know that cost can be a barrier to people using public transport so we hope this significant discount will make bus travel a more viable option, whilst also reducing car journeys across the county.”
