Half-price bus travel for Manchester under 18s

Almost 100,000 young people in Greater Manchester can now benefit from half-price bus tickets.

The deal, first announced in June by Mayor of Greater Manchester Andy Burnham, following an agreement with the region’s bus operators, means anyone aged between 16 and 18 who lives or studies in Greater Manchester can get 50% off a day’s unlimited travel on any bus in Greater Manchester.

The ‘Anybus 1-Day Travelcard’ – available from bus drivers – has been introduced by Greater Manchester Travelcards Ltd (GMTL), which represents all bus companies in Greater Manchester.

Anyone wanting to take advantage of the offer will first need a 16-18 get me there smart card, which can be ordered online at www.getmethere.com.
