Cross-boundary travel - West Yorkshire and beyond

The West Yorkshire Guide to Cross Boundary Bus & Train Services is available to download in pdf file format below.

This shows where your Metro prepaid or concessionary ticket is valid when you are travelling on buses and trains that cross the county boundary. Neighbouring counties include North & South Yorkshire, Greater Manchester and Lancashire.

It shows:

  • Cross-boundary services
  • The location of the fare stage
  • Approximate locations to and from which West Yorkshire's ticketing conditions apply.
  • A map to help find the cross-boundary locations.

When you board the bus, you will need to show your MCard, West Yorkshire DaySaver or other Metro-issued travel card, and pay the full fare for the part of your journey outside of West Yorkshire.

If you do not pay the combined fares at the start of the journey you may be charged the full adult fare for the entire journey.

Young Persons travel outside of West Yorkshire

The National Rail Conditions of Carriage allow Young persons under the age of 16 to travel at half fare on all trains. For travel outside of West Yorkshire, beyond the last West Yorkshire stopping station, full fare is payable for West Yorkshire Young Persons & 16-18 PhotoCard holders, unless they are in possession of a discounted railcard such as a 16-25 Railcard.
