YOUNG people in Barnsley who are aged between 16-18 will be able to get discounted fares on bus, train and tram travel across South Yorkshire from this summer.

Cut-price tickets for 16-to-18-year-olds were previously only available to those in full time education or spending over 12 hours a week in the classroom.

But from July 1, anyone in that age bracket living within South Yorkshire, including those in apprenticeships and employment, will now be able to apply for a 16-18 Travel Pass, entitling them to reduced fares on buses and trams, and half-price travel on Northern Rail services.

MegaTravel passes, entitling holders aged 11-16 to discounted fares across South Yorkshire, are unaffected by the changes.
