When Labour’s Andy Burnham stood for election to be Mayor of Greater Manchester he pledged to deliver free bus travel for 16-18 year olds.
This will be delivered later this year in the form of “Our Pass”.
Our Pass, as well as free bus travel, will also provide access to a range of opportunities for young people here in Bolton and across Greater Manchester. This could include tickets for sports, music, culture and leisure attractions and careers events.
If you’re aged 16-18 you can have your say on the types of opportunities you’d like Our Pass to include. Be sure to complete this short survey to let Transport for Greater Manchester know what you want – www.ourpass.co.uk
Applications for Our Pass will open in July via www.ourpass.co.uk and you will be able to start using it in September.
I’m pleased to see this positive Labour initiative being brought in to help my constituents. I hope that we will soon have a Labour Government so that we can go further in boosting our local bus network to the benefit of everyone in Bolton.
