Please make sure that you apply for the appropriate transport passes to ensure that your child is able to get to their chosen High School in September by following the instructions below these applications must be made by specific dates.
Application to TfGM for an IGO card (children cannot travel at the concessionary rate without one, they also cannot apply for a yellow bus pass without one, there is a cost)
