  • School Plus MetroCard

    What is School Plus MetroCard?

    It's a bus-only travel card for anyone aged 5 to 18 years old in full-time education.


    • Great savings for regular bus users.
    • Offers virtually unlimited bus travel in West Yorkshire at any time on any day of the week.
    • Available as weekly or monthly cards.


    School Plus MetroCards are valid on most West Yorkshire buses displaying the Metro logo at most times of any day of the week which makes them better value than some operator special offer tickets which can only be used at certain times or on certain journeys.

    School Plus MetroCard costs £9.25 per week or £34 per month.


    Cardholders travelling further than West Yorkshire will have to pay the additional fare at the start of their journey.
