All children under the age of 7 travel for free. Any fare paying customer or pass holder (including ENCT) can take up to 2 children with them under the age of 7 for free. Any additional children travelling will be charged the normal child fare (regardless of whether they are under 7 or over).

Child fares are available up until your 19th birthday. Many young customers look very grown up and our drivers may want to check your age. We recommend that ID is carried so that your age can be verified, otherwise you may be charged an adult fare.
