Women’s Concessionary Travel Scheme Terms and Conditions

Terms and conditions for using your TfGM Women’s Concessionary Travel Scheme concessionary travel pass

  • Your pass entitles you to free off peak travel between 9:30am and midnight, Monday to Friday; or at any time on a Saturday or Sunday, or on any public holiday on buses, trams and trains in Greater Manchester as set out in the 'Local Concessionary Travel Scheme'. You can get more information about concessionary travel for Greater Manchester residents from www.tfgm.com or any TfGM Travelshops.

  • You must touch your concessionary pass to the smart reader when boarding a bus, and when you start and end each journey on Metrolink trams, in order to validate your entitlement to free travel. You must do this whenever you are entitled to travel free of charge. Metrolink readers are at every stop on the network.

  • Always show your concessionary pass to the bus driver, ticket inspector or train conductor where there is no smart reader present or if it is not working.

  • You must present your concessionary pass on request to a TfGM or transport operator official.

  • Do not allow another person use your concessionary pass. Your right to free or discounted travel is not transferable. Your concessionary pass does not cover the travel of carers or companions.

  • When using your concessionary pass on any service, you must also comply with and observe the passenger regulations, conditions of carriage and bye-laws of that service (as applicable).

  • Your concessionary pass is valid up to the expiry date shown on the front of it, as long as you continue to live in Greater Manchester, or until we decide otherwise.

  • The photograph on your concessionary pass must be a true and current likeness of yourself.

  • Your concessionary pass is not valid if it is damaged or altered in any way.

  • Your pass can be taken from you if it is not used in compliance with these terms and conditions.

  • If you are told that your concessionary pass is no longer valid for travel, you must pay for your journey. The transport operator may retain your concessionary pass in such circumstances, and you should contact TfGM to request a replacement.

You must contact Transport for Greater Manchester immediately if:

  • your concessionary pass is lost or stolen or you move home;
  • you believe your concessionary pass is faulty (for example, it is frequently rejected by smart readers);
