Travel for school or leisure
Children under the age of 16 (and 16-18 year olds with a photocard) 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.
Most child tickets are now available on Swift photocard. This gives you quicker access at rail gates with network and train 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.
Some operators have an additional range of passes available to use on their services only. See operator websites for more details.
