Go Cards initiative provides free bus travel for Onchan, Baldrine and Laxey commuters to relieve congestion

Commuters in Onchan, Baldrine and Laxey are being offered the chance to try travelling by bus for free with a Go Places card loaded with 18 journeys.

The initiative is being brought forward to mitigate the effect of the north-bound one-way system in place on Douglas Promenade, and aims to have environmental benefits while relieving congestion.

The Go Places cards are valid for journeys taken Monday to Friday 7.30am-9am and 4.30pm-6pm, from Monday 27 July until Friday 4 September. 

Go Places cards will be available from Friday 24 July for use from Monday 27 July. Residents of Onchan, Baldrine and Laxey can claim their card by visiting the Welcome Centre at the Sea Terminal in Douglas with proof of identification and address.

One Go Places card can be collected per adult, and the fare band of the card will be allocated based on address and the distance to central Douglas.
