Young people get 10% off their annual bus tickets
10 months ago
We have teamed up with East Sussex Credit Union (ESCU) to offer young people 10% off their annual bus tickets.
Annual busID citySAVER and networkSAVER tickets for young people are already more than £100 cheaper than buying four 90-day saver tickets. Now they’re an even better deal.
For example, if you usually buy three citySAVER 90-day tickets at £100 each to cover your child’s travel to school, under this new deal you get a whole year’s travel for £285.75. That’s 95-day’s extra travel, including all the school holidays, for £14.25 less!
It’s the same with networkSAVERs. While three 90-day networkSAVERs cost £310.50; a year-round networkSAVER now costs £301.50. With it, your child can travel all year and you still save money.
What’s more, the 10% discount on an annual networkSAVER is a saving of £33.50 off the usual price.
East Sussex Credit Union CEO, Ann Hickey, said: “I am very pleased the credit union is able to extend its offer to our young savers on discounted annual bus passes with Brighton & Hove Buses. Local families will continue to benefit from our on-going collaborative working.”
Our Managing Director Martin Harris said: “This extra discount on annual tickets is excellent value for young people and gives them the freedom to get around the city on weekends and holidays for less, as well as during term time. By working with the credit union, we’ve extended the savings adults already enjoy to young people.”
To take advantage of these great savings, all you need to do is get a free busID card and become an ESCU Young Saver. If you don’t already have a busID, find out how to get one here.
Adults can become credit union members themselves and open a Young Savers’ account for their child online or just print off a Young Savers’ membership form and bring it, along with ID, to the credit union’s office in Hove Town Hall.
You can spread the cost monthly, if you like, by applying for a loan through the credit union. Loans are only issued to parents or carers to spread the cost. ESCU do not issue loans to under 18s.
