Yellow School Bus Service 2018/19

Dear parent/guardian,

Yellow School Bus Services 2018/2019

We’d like to invite you to apply for a place for your child on our Yellow School Bus service.

Applications for the next academic year can be made from Monday 04th June and can be made online until Saturday 30th June.

Places are limited and failure to either apply for a new place or renew an existing place before this date could see pupils miss out on a place.

Please do not submit multiple applications. TfGM will only provide one bus pass per child. If you are unsure whether your application has been received please contact TfGM via email or phone.

If there are spaces available for your desired bus after the 30th June, applications will reopen.

The dedicated services are a great way to travel, providing pupils and parents with a safe, reliable and environmentally friendly alternative to the school run.

To use the service, they must have the relevant yellow school bus pass and this will be enforced. Pupils should also be in possession of an igo pass.

More details about the service, including an FAQ and the application portal, can be found on the Transport for Greater Manchester website at

Thank you for your co-operation and please contact TfGM for further assistance.

Yours sincerely

Yellow School Bus Team
