Applications for free school travel passes for 2020/21
The application process for free school travel passes for September 2020 will open on 13th May 2020. Although this is an early announcement, it is important to have this date in mind as we had issues this year with securing enough places on our yellow bus from Brinnington. Below is some guidance on how you get an igo pass and how you can apply for a yellow bus pass.
Note from Stockport.gov.uk: you will not receive a response if you email to apply for a pass for September 2020.
Only a small number of children are eligible for a free school travel pass, so you'll need to apply early to avoid disappointment. The link to the online application form will be available on the 13th May 2020. Before applying you must find out if your child is eligible for a free school travel pass.

Yellow bus passes and igo passes
To apply for a Yellow School Bus pass you need to already have an igo pass. Children aged 11 to 16 can obtain an igo pass to prove that they are under 16 and should pay the concessionary fare on buses in Greater Manchester. Link to this here: https://tfgm.com/tickets-and-passes/igo-pass
To apply for a yellow bus pass (if you want to travel on the yellow bus you must have the igo above and this) go to this link: https://tfgm.com/tickets-and-passes/bus-yellow-school-buses
