Manchester City Council

Schools & education Apply for a school travel pass

Apply here if you live in Manchester. If you live outside Manchester apply to your local council. For a child with a statement of special educational needs, please call 0161 219 6400.

Some children get a free travel pass to get to and from school on a bus, train or tram in Greater Manchester.

Secondary pupils can choose a cycle voucher instead of a pass.

We'll let you know when your pass is ready to collect from the school

Don't qualify?

 If we've said you don't qualify, you can appeal against our decision. We'll write to tell you how. 

There's a range of other travel passes and reduced fares for under-16s. See who qualifies and how to apply at the Transport for Greater Manchester website
