Zoom Under 16 and Zoom 16-18 concessionary travel passes provide proof of eligibility to travel for a discounted single journey fare on bus and tram, and half fare on Northern trains in South Yorkshire.

Additionally, pass holders are eligible to purchase a range of discounted daily, weekly and 28-day tickets from bus and tram operators, including prepaid tickets offering unlimited travel across South Yorkshire.

Anyone who has an existing travel pass that has not expired does not need to apply for a new Zoom Under 16 or Zoom 16-18 Travel Pass, as their existing pass will remain valid until it expires.

Eligibility and how to apply

Our travel passes are available to young people aged 18 and under who live in South Yorkshire.  Early application is encouraged in order to benefit from discounted travel over the summer holidays.

The quickest way to apply for a pass is online by creating a MyTSY account. Further information about the range of passes available, eligibility, the benefits of having a free Zoom Travel Pass and how to apply can be found at


We aim to dispatch each pass within 11 days of receiving a completed online application if all details are correct.

If customers are unable to apply online, we are asking them to please give our Traveline team a call on 01709 515151, between 7am and 7pm Monday to Friday or 8am and 7pm Saturday and Sunday, and they will happily talk them through their options.
