Important changes to bus travel
From Sunday 2nd June, child 7 day easyrider tickets will be sold a little differently.
When you buy this ticket, the bus driver will scan your igo card with the correct ticket instead of giving you a paper copy. You can then touch-in with your igo card on the card reader each time you get the bus.
Don’t worry, there is no change to the cost of the ticket.
What is an igo card?
Igo cards are a form of ID and proof of age for children aged 11-16. Children must carry their igo card with them in order to pay the child price.
Many students already have an igo card as ID and so can use this to buy bus fare.
What happens if I don’t have an igo card?
If you are aged 11-16 and don’t have an igo card, you cannot purchase an easyrider ticket. You’ll be charged £2 for each journey on a Stagecoach bus or £1.75 on a TfGM bus.
You can take the form and proof to a Travelshop who can check and take payment, or post your documents to the FREEPOST address on the application form.
