School Bus Fares Sept 2018

I am writing to inform you of some upcoming changes to Transport for Greater Manchester’s (TfGM) school bus service fares, which are increasing in line with inflation.

From September 2018, the following fare changes will apply:

  • Single fares will increase from £1.30 to £1.35;
  • Non Igo fare will increase from £1.70 to £1.75;
  • Return tickets will increase from £2.20 to £2.30; and
  • Weekly tickets will increase from £7 to £7.30.

Please could you ensure that these changes are communicated to all affected pupils and parents in advance of September 2018.

There are a number of other school bus services on which fares are set by the operator. These services be unaffected by these changes.

Full details on this and also those services where school returns and school weekly tickets are available/accepted will be provided on the TfGM website before the start of the new school year.

If you require any further information regarding school bus fares, please contact TfGM on 0161 244 1000.

Yours sincerely,

Jenny Coates

Service Planning Officer
