Online forms: Zero Fare Bus Pass Enquiry

This form has a maximum of 5 pages

A zero fare bus pass means a child does not need to pay their own bus fares to travel to or from their school.

A zero fare bus pass will only be awarded to children and young people (aged 5 to 16 years) who live in Rotherham and meet the separate qualifying criteria.

Students who live outside Rotherham

If your child goes to a school in Rotherham but lives outside Rotherham Council’s area, you should contact your own council for help (this is the one who sends your council tax bill).

Students aged 16 and over

If the student is over age 16 and due to attend college or sixth form they are no longer entitled to a zero fare bus pass. There are different qualifiying criteria so please search the pages for ‘post 16 transport enquiry’ and the further education transport policy.
