Children aged 5 to 16
From age 5, children need a valid ticket to travel by tram, bus or a combination of both.
There are child prices for most ticket types in Greater Manchester but some are only available with an igo pass.
11 to 16 year olds always need an igo pass, to buy and use discounted child tickets, when travelling by bus.
Easy cash-free child travel
An igo pass is an ID card AND a smart card. This means you can buy child tram tickets and travelcards online, using a get me there account and store them on an igo pass, perfect if you're a parent or guardian buying a ticket for your child:
- link an igo pass to your online account or create a new get me there account (you must be at least 13 to set up your own account)
- buy a child tram ticket
The ticket will be available from the day after you buy it, just use the igo pass with the smart readers when travelling:
- touch-in at the tram stop before boarding
- touch-out at the tram stop when you finish your journey
