School Buses

If travelling to and from school on a First Bus, there’s a policy you should be aware of, especially if you are paying for your bus fare using notes.

If the bus driver hasn’t got enough change to give to you, a change voucher will be issued from the ticket machine as a cash value for any change that is due. If you are issued a voucher, please keep it safe and when possible, present it to a driver on another First Bus to exchange for cash.

Please remember to keep your change voucher safe – as without it, you’ll not be able to claim your change.

If you have any queries about this policy, please call First Bus directly on 0161 627 2929 (lines open 0700-1900 Monday to Friday and 0900-1700 Saturday, local call charges apply).

IGO Cards

Students with igo cards can now use get me there to pay for travel on Metrolink. They simply log on to, create an account, add their card, then buy smart tickets in advance to load straight onto their igo card when travelling.

If you have any further questions, please contact TfGM Customer Relations on 0161 244 1000.
