The Endeavour Card
Suffolk County Council have launched a new Travel Smartcard named the Endeavour Card, initially for young people in Suffolk for whom travel may be a barrier to get to work and training/education.
This initiative will assist with the removal of transport barriers for young people to help them access education, work and training opportunities in Suffolk by providing a smart Travel Card which among other benefits, will provide a consistent minimum discount with participating operators to those young people aged 16-19 in Suffolk.
In removing barriers to accessing education, work and training, the Endeavour card will make a significant contribution to achieving the aims of the County Council’s Raising the Bar initiative, to raise attainment and aspiration, and better match skills with future jobs.
The Endeavour Card is designed to enable cashless payment on public transport services where the bus company agrees to accept the card. The card acts like an Oyster Card, in that it will have stored value and online top-up ability. This will enable parents and others to ensure young people can pay for their transport.
There are currently two types of Endeavour Card available to apply for:
Available to 16-19 year olds, further information is available here
Purchase bulk journeys for use on Ipswich Park & Ride only, further information is available here
