Residential MetroCard | Tickets and Passes

New home buyers - ask your development Sales Office Manager if the Residential MetroCard Scheme is available at their development site.

The MetroCard allows virtually unlimited travel on buses and trains throughout West Yorkshire.

What are the benefits?

The RMC Scheme will:

  • help address residents' need for access to a full range of facilities for work, education, health, leisure, recreation and shopping by public transport;
  • reduce the traffic generated by the development;
  • promote healthy sustainable lifestyles and;
  • raise the awareness of public transport and help establish more sustainable travel patterns.
