Under 16 Travelcard

Translink is working with digital ID experts Yoti to introduce a new FREE digital ID travelcard for school students aged 13 and over.

As well as offering reduced fares on all Translink bus and rail services, there are some great reasons to get your digital ID travelcard (please note; this is not a pre-loaded travelcard. It is a form of identity):

  • It is safe and secure
  • It cannot be lost or stolen – you can always download the Yoti app to your phone
  • It is easy to use – simply open the Yoti app and show your travelcard to the driver or conductor on any Translink bus or train
  • By using a digital travelcard, you can reduce paper waste

Get your digital travelcard

Getting your digital travelcard is easy. Just:
  • Vist translink.yoti.com where you will find links to download the app and a QR code to create your account
  • Add your phone number and create a five-digit PIN to secure your account
  • Add a selfie to verify your identity and protect your account
  • Add your school email address

Protecting your privacy and security

The new student travelcard will be stored in the Yoti app. The app was designed to protect your personal data from being accessed or sold to third parties.  Translink will not hold any of your personal data- photos, emails or phone numbers. 

Once security checks have been completed, your personal information cannot be forwarded to any businesses or individuals unless you choose to send them.

You can read more about how your personal data will be handled here.

Why do you need to take a selfie?

When you are registering for your student travelcard, you will be asked to take a selfie with the Yoti app. This is to verify that you are a real person.

It also helps to make sure your personal information is secure. Your selfie will be used to create your biometric key. When you take certain actions in the app, you will be asked to supply a selfie or a scan of your face. This will ensure that no one else is able to use the app to impersonate you.
