Is this OK?
Children aged 5 to 10 years old pay half fare on most buses and all trains
displaying the Metro symbol in West Yorkshire, including Metro school
buses. No PhotoCard is required (unless the child looks a lot older!).
However, if your child is a regular bus-only user, School Plus is a great way to save money.
School Plus 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.
School Plus MCard costs £9.50 per week or £35 per month
Cardholders travelling further than West Yorkshire will have to pay the additional fare at the start of their journey.
You can buy the School Plus MCard at Bus Station Travel Centres, and at over 700 Payzone outlets in West Yorkshire. Locate your nearest Payzone (external website)
When you buy a SchoolPlus MCard you must have your Young Person's PhotoCard or a Scholar's PhotoCard with you. Your PhotoCard is used with your MCard to prove who you are.Your travel will be loaded on to your MCard and you will receive a counterpart showing the expiry date, which you should keep with your PhotoCard.
