Bus travel will remain free off-peak but to use trams and trains you’ll need to add them to your pass for £10 a year.

The charge does not apply to concessionary passes for disabled people.

You can pay at a TfGM Travelshop, at a PayPoint shop (from January 25) or online at

Once you have paid online, you will need to touch-in with your concessionary pass at a Metrolink smart reader within 14 days, at any tram stop, and your pass will be updated to show you have paid to add tram and train.

If you need your pass for travelling by train and will not be able to visit a Metrolink stop first, we suggest you buy from a PayPoint or a TfGM Travelshop.
