Our Pass has launched an exciting range of advent calendar exclusives for members to enjoy over the festive season.

The team are counting down to the New Year with some amazing surprises stacked up under the Christmas tree for all Our Pass members. Every day in December a festive reveal will be released on Instagram.

Our Pass is a UK first. Now in its third year, it is aimed at Greater Manchester’s GCSE leavers, and care leavers aged 18-21. It’s there to unlock the city-region, a pass to all 10 boroughs. Since its launch, in September 2019, more than 100,000 cards have been issued and members have made more than 18 million journeys.

Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham, said:

“As Mayor, I pledged to make young people the priority for investment. Now not only does Our Pass provide free bus travel but it also offers lots of exciting exclusives across Greater Manchester. I want to thank all the businesses and organisations that have supported Our Pass members this year and the tremendous exclusives they are providing for young people this December.”

Liam Scholes, Chair of Greater Manchester’s Youth Combined Authority, said:

“The pandemic has been a challenging time for all young people, when it’s been important to try to keep positive and adapt the best we can. So, it’s great to see the Our Pass team are counting down to Christmas with some amazing surprises for members.

“Got your Our Pass card but not signed up for exclusives yet? What are you waiting for! They’ll be featuring a festive reveal every day in December on Instagram. So, make sure you check it out.”

Members can apply for any prizes that are up for grabs, as long as they are signed into their exclusives account. For full details visit ourpass.co.uk/register
