Get back to school with an igo travel pass
6:00am Friday 30th August 2013 in News
WITH the new school year almost here, parents are being reminded to make sure their child has an igo pass when they catch the bus to school.
The igo pass is a photo ID travel pass that secondary school pupils aged 11 to 16 have to show in order to travel for the concessionary fare on Greater Manchester’s buses.
Without it, they face being charged a higher fare. Young people using Metrolink in Greater Manchester can also use their igo as a proof-of-age card for child fares.
Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) issues the passes. Applications forms are available online at www.tfgm.com/igo and can also be picked up from Travelshops at main bus stations in Greater Manchester.
It takes around 10 working days after applying to receive your card. Each igo pass costs £5 and will be valid from the date of issue until August 31 after the holder’s 16th birthday.
