Can I pay for an annual pass using the Payment Portal?
Yes, provided you do not get a bursary. Students in receipt of a bursary must purchase their pass using termly instalments as the bursary is dependent upon a minimum of 90% attendance each term for financial help the following term.
Am I eligible for a bursary and where can I apply for one?
Callywith is able to subsidise the cost of bus transport for all and offer significant bursaries to reduce the costs for students from lower income households. We can provide bursaries to contribute towards bus pass costs based on total annual household income at the following rates:

**If you are not eligible for a bursary under our existing scheme, you will be pleased to hear about our transitional discount. Following recent announcements regarding funding for Post-16 education from September and publication of new pricing for public transport in Cornwall, we have been able to add an additional 10% transitional discounts for students in households where their annual income falls outside of our existing bursary scheme. Households with an income between £31,001 and £70,000 will be eligible for a reduced annual pass price of £585 for 2023-24 once the transitional discount has been applied. Prospective students eligible for the transitional discount will be able to apply for this discount at the point of purchase and do not need to complete a bursary form. This discount is still dependent on a minimum of 90% attendance each term.

If you’ve been awarded a bursary, please be aware, these discounts will not be applied to the payment portal until 1st August, 2023. Please log in after this date to make a payment.
