Welcome to Hertfordshire SaverCard

HALF FARE BUS TRAVEL FOR STUDENTS AGED 11 to 18

There is no obligation for bus companies to provide half fare travel to children, because of this Hertfordshire County Council provide a scheme called Hertfordshire SaverCard which entitles the holder to travel for half the adult fare at all times on local bus services within Hertfordshire and to certain destinations outside the county (see Conditions of Use).

If you are aged 11-18 in full time education and a resident in the administrative county of Hertfordshire you can apply for a Hertfordshire SaverCard that will run within an academic year, for example if you apply for 2016/2017 the card will be valid up to and including the 30th September 2017. This can then be renewed every academic year as long as you still qualify.

You must have a valid Hertfordshire SaverCard with you at the time of travel otherwise you will be charged the full adult fare.

If you are applying for a new SaverCard for the academic year 2017/2018 this cannot be done until after 1st August 2017. This will then expire 30th September 2018.

If your family is on low income you may qualify for one Hertfordshire SaverCard free of charge each academic year. These applications must be made through 'How can we help?' team by calling 0300 123 4048.
