If you have a TfGM-issued pension-age concessionary pass or a Women’s Concessionary Travel pass), to continue to benefit from unlimited off-peak travel on trams and trains in Greater Manchester after 1 February 2020, you will need to pay an annual £10 fee.

There is no change to free, off-peak bus travel across England and, if you only use buses, you can choose not to pay to add tram and train.

The £10 charge does not apply to concessionary passes for disabled people.

If you pay early, you will be covered for one year from 1 February 2020. After 1 February, you’ll be covered for a full year from the date you pay: in person at a TfGM Travelshop, in person at a PayPoint shop (from January 25, 2020 only), online at getmethere.com
