Children & Young People

Are you 19 or under, and paying the full adult fare whenever you use the bus? Epic fail!

This could be the oddest advice you've ever had from a bus company - but we mean it.

We don't want you to be paying full fare if you're 19 or under. Money is meant for better things than spending on bus travel, right? We know that the bus is your ticket to freedom, and with free WiFi and USB power on lots of our buses, we also help you to stay connected with your friends.

Under 5s travel free

Children under 5 travel free on all of our buses (they just need to be travelling with an adult!).

Under 16s in West Yorkshire

Children aged 11-16 in West Yorkshire travel for half price when in school uniform - no ID required! If you're not in school uniform, you must have either a Metro Young Persons PhotoCard (for 11-16 year olds) or a Metro 16-18 Photocard to get 1/2 price fares.

Under 19s in North Yorkshire

Under 19s travelling in North Yorkshire get 1/3 off adult fares, no ID required - just ask your driver for a young person's ticket.

Under 19s in Lancashire 

UGO is your ticket to 1/3 off all adult fares on buses in Lancashire. Simply ask your driver for a UGO ticket when you get on the bus, and you'll get 1/3 off the price of your ticket. No ifs, no buts, no forms to fill in - and no excuse for staying indoors this weekend!
