Important Info - IGO Bus pass

From Sunday 2 June we are changing the way we sell child 7 day easyrider tickets

If your child buys this ticket, the driver will load it onto their igo card instead of giving them a paper ticket.

They will then need to validate their journey by touching their igo card onto the card reader each time they travel.

The price and the validity of this ticket will remain the same

What is an igo card?

From the age of 11 until 31 August after their 16th birthday, your child can pay child fares on buses in Greater Manchester if they have an igo card. Your child must carry their igo card with them in order to travel using a child ticket if they are aged 11-16.

If your child is aged 5-16 they now need an igo card to buy a Stagecoach easyrider, as well as System One Junior AnyBus and get me there Junior AnyBus tickets.

My child doesn't have an igo card

To continue to purchase an easyrider ticket your child will need to apply to TfGM for an igo card.

Visit to download an application form or get a copy of the form from a TfGM Travelshop

My child already has an igo card

All that changes is the way your child travels with your igo card:

• The bus driver will load the ticket onto your child's igo card

• Every time your child catches the bus they will be asked to touch-in on the ticket machine card reader
