Under 16 photocard

Help for those who look older

If you’re under 16 and have had problems proving your age on public transport, this card is here to help. It proves to drivers and inspectors that you’re entitled to a child's fare – even if you look older.

You can use this card to buy a child fare when you're buying a season ticket or paying cash on the bus, train and metro.

The under 16 photocard is:

  • Free and easy to use
  • Replaced free
  • Recognised by all operators across the West Midlands
  • Plastic so that it’s more durable than the paper photocard
