Important: An 'igo pass' proves a child's entitlement to purchase the concessionary fare on the Yellow Bus (igo pass costs £10).
If you do not wish to provide proof of name and age (as requested by the application form) you can get the form stamped by the school.
Once you have obtained your igo pass you will need to apply for a seat on the Yellow Bus
(For 2021 academic year there is no requirement for a Yellow Bus Pass)
