New proof of age card for Essex - Yoti-CitizenCard

12/02/2019

You may be aware the County Council has stopped issuing students with the BITE proof of age card and reached an agreement with 'Yoti-CitizenCard' to offer a new and more widely recognised proof of age system. This is the CitizenCard:

 

 

 

CitizenCard can help students to:

  • prove their age to the bus driver so they can obtain the reduced fare they are entitled to under the bus company's terms and conditions
  • prove age when buying age-restricted goods
  • prove their age online (optional)

Students can apply for a FREE Yoti-CitizenCard through their school or college. Schools and Colleges can contact essex@citizencard.com for information about how to issue cards.

For full details visit the Essex Highways website.

Schools and colleges may wish to take up the offer of a site visit from Citizencard in order to issue cards for groups of students, please see attached information detailing how to arrange this or contact passenger.transport@essex.gov.uk
