Yellow School Bus Passes
TfGM will continue to monitor guidance issued by government in preparation for the new term.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, TfGM won’t be issuing Yellow School Bus passes for the start of the new academic year in September.
Instead, all Yellow School Buses will operate as regular dedicated school buses, meaning no passes will be needed and any child can board any service. This will allow more students to use the buses at a time when the overall capacity on the network is still likely to be reduced.
Students will still need an igo card to pay concessionary fares.
