Yellow School Bus Services 2016 / 2017

Changes have been made to the application process for Yellow School Buses for the 2016 / 2017 academic year.

Applications for Service Y43 will be dealt with according to pupils’ home location which means that pupils living closest to the routes will get priority. The application portal on Transport for Greater Manchester’s website will be open from 1st May 2016 and place allocation will start after 31st May 2016. The website address is www.tfgm.com/buses/yellowschoolbus

All pupils, in order to maximise their chances of being issued with a pass, will need to apply between these dates. Late applications (June onwards) will have a reduced chance of being successful. Pupils must have the relevant yellow school bus pass in order to be able to travel on the services and this will be enforced. Pupils should also be in possession of an igo pass.
