Our Pass Scheme

Learners should ensure they do not pass on Our Pass

Total People learners can now access the world of work and training with free travel and transport in Greater Manchester.  

The Our Pass Scheme is now in operation throughout Greater Manchester. It offers Greater Manchester’s 16-18 year old’s free bus travel on all local bus services across the region, making it easier to access education, work and training opportunities in the city.

Our Pass will also provide direct access to a range of activities throughout the summer, from music to sport, competitions and taster days.

Learners who are eligible can apply now on the OurPass website and use the card from Sunday 1 September. Learners must be a Greater Manchester resident, and aged at least 16 and under 18 on Saturday 31 August 2019. 

James Dean, Sales and Commercial Director, said: “This is a fantastic scheme that will really help our Greater Manchester learners. I would urge any tutors or assessors to encourage their eligible learners to take advantage of Our Pass, which starts on 1 September, 2019.”

In addition, apprentices of any age can take advantage of a scheme from Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) which offers free and reduced price ticket offers, and even a free bike. For more details about both schemes take a look at the personal travel choices for apprentices in Greater Manchester.  

Learners in any area aged 16 to 17 who travel by train can access a new 16-17 Saver card which gives up to 50 per cent discount on rail fares after purchasing the £30 card. Find out more at 16-17 Saver.

And not forgetting the NUS Apprentice Extra card which is available to apprentices across the UK.  The card offers a huge range of discounts in-store and online, and helps apprentices of any age stretch their hard earned cash a little further.

Discounts can be found at a wide range of well known fashion, food, entertainment and transport brands, including The Co-operative Food, Megabus.com, BSM driving instructors, and Odeon cinemas.

Eligible learners can apply online or find out more at NUS Apprentice Extra.
