YOUNG people are being urged to apply for a free travel pass.

South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive (SYPTE) is urging teenagers from 16-18 to apply for a free travel pass and enjoy the benefit of cheaper fares on public transport.

The passes are valid all year round. Tim Taylor, director of customer service at SYPTE said: “The 16-18 Travel Pass gives young people the freedom to travel anytime, anywhere in South Yorkshire for less.

This year we are again working with employers, schools and colleges to make sure that even more of the 16 to 18-year-olds living in South Yorkshire benefit from cheaper travel to work, education or to enjoy their days and nights out.”
