Greater Manchester’s Our Pass is the new bus pass that gives 16-18 year olds the freedom to travel, work and learn. The pass provides free bus travel as well as discounts and free deals at certain retailers and sponsors.

Our Pass is the new bus pass for 16-18-year-olds. For a one-off £10 administration fee, it unlocks free bus travel right across Greater Manchester – meaning that young people could unlock potential savings of over £500. 

  • Our Pass will cover all local bus services across Greater Manchester
  • The card removes the hassle and cost of buying tickets or passes for specific routes and operators
  • Our Pass can be used seven days a week and has no time restrictions for bus travel. It’ll not just make getting to school, college, work and training easier, but also going out with friends and exploring Greater Manchester. 

Our Pass is a UK first, a two year pilot that starts on Sunday 1 September 2019. Led by Mayor Andy Burnham and the Greater Manchester Combined Authority, with support from Transport from Greater Manchester, it has been developed with the Greater Manchester Youth Combined Authority and a host of other youth organisations, groups, schools and colleges. It has been designed to support young people at a crucial point in their lives. The potential for making Our Pass permanent will be reviewed over the course of the pilot.
