If you have a TfGM-issued pension-age concessionary pass or a Women’s Concessionary Travel pass, to continue to benefit from unlimited off-peak travel on trams and trains in Greater Manchester after 1 February 2020, you will need to pay an annual £10 fee.
There is no change to free, off-peak bus travel across England and, if you only use buses, you can choose not to pay to add tram and train.
The £10 charge does not apply to concessionary passes for disabled people.
The new scheme starts 1 February, but you can pay now, to make sure you’re ready. If you pay early, you will be covered for one year from 1 February 2020. After 1 February, you’ll be covered for a full year from the date you pay.
