Greater Manchester Apprentice Travel Offers: Apprenticeship Provider Guidance
Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) has announced details of an Apprentice Bike to Work Scheme & an Apprentice Free Ticket Scheme.
Apprentice Bike to Work Scheme
The Apprentice Bike to Work Scheme offers apprentices a free refurbished bike and accessories for them to use accessing their place of work and training. Cycling is a low cost and practical way for apprentices to travel, especially where working hours or location rules out public transport.
All apprentices living in Greater Manchester are eligible for the scheme.
For TfGM to be able to offer this scheme to your apprentices, we will need a nominated member/members of staff to be responsible for signing off their completed application forms.
Apprentice Free Ticket Scheme
The Apprentice Free Ticket Scheme offers new* apprentices ONE free 28 day bus and Metrolink ticket for them to use accessing their place of work and training. The apprentice ticket can be used on all Metrolink trams and most buses across Greater Manchester.
*within the first 6 months of their apprenticeship start date
All new apprentices who live and have an apprenticeship in Greater Manchester are eligible for the scheme.
For TfGM to be able to offer this scheme to your apprentices, we will need a nominated member/members of staff to be responsible for stamping their completed application forms. Following the return of this form to TfGM, a TfGM date stamp will be posted to you for validating the application forms (the stamp is required by Greater Manchester Travelcards Ltd who subsidise the ticket to reduce potential fraud).
