You can now buy your scholars passes online!
From September 2013 the way to buy scholars tickets changed, you can now simply apply for the passes at http://passes.gosouthcoast.co.uk/
The dedicated school passes are only for use on the school route that connects your school. If there are students that like to use our normal service buses at the weekends or evenings, there is an additional bolt-on option to include our normal bus network too, thus allowing the same flexibility as one of our key smartcards at these times. These passes will be available to buy termly.
For students that don’t use the bus every day, single and return fares will still be available to buy from the driver.To register for a pass, a jpeg passport style image of the student will be required along with a debit/credit card to make the appropriate payment. If you have more than one child at the same school, multiple passes can be purchased in one transaction.
The new passes offer peace of mind as they will each have a picture of the student along with their name, route number and the name of the school/college that they attend.
As well as online purchasing which is convenient for most parents, the passes will be posted directly to your home, so no long queuing in our busy travel shops during the holidays. The new school passes are available buy now.
