  • School Plus MetroCard / MCard

    A bus-only travel card for anyone ages 5 to 18 years old in full-time education.

    What do you get?

    • Great savings for regular bus users.
    • Virtually unlimited bus travel in West Yorkshire at any time, on any day of the week.
    • Choose weekly or monthly cards.


    SchoolPlus MetroCards / MCards are valid on most West Yorkshire buses displaying the Metro logo.  They can be used at most times of the day, seven days a week.  That makes them better value than some operator special offer tickets, which can only be used at certain times or on certain journeys.

    How much does it cost?

    School Plus MCard costs £9.25 per week or £34 per month


    School Plus MetroCard costs £9.50 per week or £34.50 per month.


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

    Where to buy

    You can buy MetroCards from Bus Station Travel Centres.


    You can buy the MCard version at Bus Station Travel Centres, Leeds Visitor Centre (Leeds Rail Station) and at over 700 Payzone outlets in West Yorkshire.

    What to take with you

    When you buy a SchoolPlus MetroCard / MCard you must have your Young Person's PhotoCard or a Scholar's PhotoCard with you. Your PhotoCard is used with your MetroCard / MCard to prove who you are.
