IGO Cards

Children who travel by bus are required to have igo cards from the age of 11 to 16 to enable them to travel for the current concessionary fare, which is half fare. The card expires on 31 August after the child’s 16th birthday. Bus Operators may charge a higher fare if children do not have an igo pass.  An application form for the igo pass can be downloaded from the TfGM website.

.An IGO card costs £10 and lasts until 31st August after your 16th birthday. The card allows 11-16 year olds to travel using child tickets on buses and trams in Greater Manchester.
