In addition to the Learner Travel (Wales) Measure duties on local authorities, children and young people are able to access other financial support. Children up to the age of 5 years old travel free on bus services across Wales, and with reduced fares up to 16 years old. The Welsh Government’s “MyTravelPass” is a discounted scheme for young people aged 16 to 21 years, providing those eligible with approximately 30% off the standard adult bus fare on local bus services across Wales.
