Free Bus Travel Across Greater Manchester

If you're aged 18-21, live in Greater Manchester and were previously in the care system (for example, foster care or residential care), you may qualify for free travel on buses in Greater Manchester and be able to benefit from membership of Our Pass Exclusives.

You will need to apply for a get me there photocard and your Personal Advisor will be able to support you to apply. Tameside Leaving Care Service will fund the initial £10 administration fee for the card itself. However if you need a replacement you will need to fund this yourself.

This is also a smart card and it will have a travelcard loaded, giving you free travel on most Greater Manchester buses up to your 21st birthday.
