Working with the Young People’s Parliament a version for young people titled KAT Card (Kids and Teenagers) has been produced. This card is available at a discounted rate of 33 per cent which has been funded by income from bus lane penalty charges and the bus companies.

The name for the card chosen by the YPP is the KAT Card (Kids and Teenagers).
