Resident Travel Scheme

Resident Travel Scheme

Through the Resident Travel Scheme, cycle discounts, bus passes and car club discounts are offered at some new residential developments in York. Usually only the first residents of a new home can apply.

This is a scheme run by City of York Council.

Read the terms and conditions. The application form will ask you to agree to them.

How to apply

Apply for the Resident Travel Scheme

Once you've applied we'll let you know if you have been successful within 2 weeks. If you have applied for a:

  • bus pass – we'll send you the bus pass
  • cycle discount – we'll send you an email or letter to take to a local cycle shop to enable you to get a discount
  • car club discount – we'll send you an email with a web address to claim your car club offer


This scheme is funded through the planning process for new residential developments. It’s to encourage first occupants to travel by bus, cycle or car club, which can have benefits to local traffic flow and the environment. Therefore, it isn’t available to most residents in York.

You'll probably know if you can apply because you may have received information from us regarding this scheme. But if you think you live on a residential estate that is taking part, but missed the publicity, contact us by email:
