Travel for school or leisure
Children under the age of 16 pay a discounted fare on all buses, trams and trains in the West Midlands. Just ask for a child ticket when you travel. Children under the age of five travel free.
Term tickets offer great value and can cover all travel needs. Most child tickets are also available on monthly Direct Debit, which is the best value option for buying tickets.
From August 2017 most child tickets are moving to Swift. This gives you quicker access at rail gates with network and ntrain tickets, and you just scan and go when hopping on board the bus. Plus the cards are more durable and replacements are easier to process and cheaper for you.
You can apply online now for child direct debit and purchase nBus 1, 4 or term tickets from a travel shop from 15 August 2017.
From October 2017 you can buy and renew 1 and 4 week tickets online and renew at over 250 Payzone stores.
Some operators have an additional range of passes available to use on their services only. See operator websites for more details.

If you're under 16 but look older, you can apply for an under 16 Photocard which can be used as proof of age when travelling.
If you're aged 16-18 and still in full-time education, you may still be eligible for child fares.
