Here’s some good news for apprentices across Greater Manchester, as TfGM has recently made some changes to its ‘Access to Apprentices’ offer.

As part of the scheme, apprentices used to be able to get 28 days’ free travel to help ease the financial pressure on them during the first month of their apprenticeship.

However, the offer has been extended, and apprentices will soon be able to get 4 x 28 day passes – meaning travel will be free for four months! We all know commuting can be costly, so this will be a welcome change for both parents and students. Apprentices will be able to reap the benefits of free travel from the end of November. 

It’s hoped the programme will also encourage learners to make long-term sustainable travel choices to improve air quality and alleviate congestion across the city-region.
