Bus Service Information

Fares Information

Passengers can pay a fare to the driver for each journey. However, students will need to show an IGO pass to travel at the concessionary (reduced) fare. If students do not have an IGO pass, they will have to pay a higher fare.

All students between the ages of 11 and 16 need an IGO pass if they wish to travel at the concessionary fare on buses. It must be carried on all journeys and shown to the driver before paying the fare. 

The IGO pass costs £10 and can only be bought by students who live in or go to school in Greater Manchester.

More information on IGO and an application form to get an IGO pass is on the Transport for Greater Manchester website at http://igo.tfgm.com

Students who are entitled to a free Scholars Travel Pass and students aged between 16 and 19 who have a Scholars Concessionary Pass, do not need an IGO Pass for these journeys.

Unless marked within the timetables then the following fares are applicable on school bus services:

IGO Single Ticket - £1.40            

IGO Return Ticket - £2.40

Scholar Pass Single Ticket - £1.40 - no return available
Single Ticket (without IGO) - £1.80 - no return available

Transport for Greater Manchester School Weekly - £7.60

The above tickets are only valid for use on the school bus service to/from school. It is not valid on any other services, therefore if you miss the bus you will need to buy another ticket to travel.
