On production of the card the bearer will be able to obtain a reduced fare of 50% off the full adult fare on local and Cross Border services.  This is valid up to 30 June, after their sixteenth birthday.

It is the passenger's responsibility to demonstrate at the time of ticket purchase, that they are entitled to the concession they claim. Passengers unable to do so will be charged the full adult fare.
