Under 16 Pop card
Children who live in Tyne and Wear and are 5 to 15 years old on the 31st August before the start of the current academic year are entitled to an Under 16 Pop card. With an Under 16 Pop card, you can travel at these concessionary child fares all day, every day:
- Single – 60p
- CAT (Child All-day Ticket) – £1.10
If you don’t have an Under 16 Pop card you won’t be able to buy concessionary child fares.
