West Yorkshire Combined Authority is offering simpler and cheaper bus travel for all Under 19s.
Single bus fares are capped at 60p, £1.20 or £1.80 depending on the length of journey.
Meanwhile the MyDay ticket allows virtually unlimited travel on buses across West Yorkshire from just £2.25 when bought in bundles of 10.
“As we begin to recover from the pandemic, our young people must be at the very forefront of our minds. Not only do cheaper fares mean better value, but these changes can also act as a gateway to secure better jobs, better opportunities and brighter futures.” said, Tracy Brabin, Mayor of West Yorkshire.
Anyone who wants to spend the whole week getting out and about, MyWeek is available for just £9.
“The ability to travel freely across West Yorkshire is vitally important to our young people as they develop social skills and prepare for adulthood – and will also support many less well-off families who are facing financial challenges beyond the pandemic.” Mayor Brabin added.
