Our Pass applications opening for 2024 school leavers


What is Our Pass?

Our Pass is a membership scheme for young people who live in Greater Manchester, and supports both school leavers and care leavers. Those eligible have the chance to become a member – and potentially enjoy two things:

First, free bus travel across Greater Manchester. For a one-off £10 fee, members can travel on most local buses, any day of the week, for free. No hassle, no fuss, no tickets: just a card that will get you where you want to go. Members can also get half-price off-peak 1 day and weekend travelcards on Metrolink.

Second, membership unlocks Our Pass Exclusives: A range of offers and experiences: discounts, special offers, free tickets, swimming and leisure passes, merchandise, taster sessions and much more.

Depending on age and eligibility, members can enjoy free bus travel and Exclusive offers until the end of August after they turn 18. or 21 for care leavers.

Our Pass Exclusives

Our Pass members get access to a range of fantastic Exclusives offers, events, discounts and experiences, from tickets to tasters, discounts and swimming and leisure passes. Our Pass Exclusives are only open to our members – look out for the Exclusives label across the site, or find out what Exclusives are live on the site now. Alongside, you’ll also find listings for other events on our website that we think you might like; these events are open to anyone and, as we’re not responsible for these events, members should check individual organisation websites for full details before heading to a venue or event.

Who is Our Pass for?

Our Pass is for eligible young people* who live in Greater Manchester. The travel pass can be used for up to two years, starting from 1 September after your 16th birthday, until 31 August after your 18th birthday (or until your 18th birthday, if this is 31 August). You can continue to use your igo card until you become eligible for Our Pass (igo cards expire on 31 August after your 16th birthday).

When can you apply?

If you are leaving school in 2024 you can apply from 1st May and can use your card automatically from 1 September. You will need to register for a website account separately to access Exclusives.

Have you activated your website account? Register now!

To access Exclusives, you’ll need to create a new website account. This is not the same as the account you set up when you applied for your travel card/pass. Have your card number handy (you’ll need the number on the back), and register for a website account here. Once registered, you’ll be able to log in to the website any time to apply for or take advantage of our member-only exclusives, offers, discounts, free tickets and special events.
