The full student fare will increase on 1 January 2024.
If you use cash for a single trip ticket, the new fare will be $2.00. If you use a GreenCard, the new fare will be $1.60. GreenCards can be topped up online.
It costs the same on every trip – it doesn’t matter how far, where, or when you go.
Some students can travel or transfer between buses for free.
You may be eligible for a Student Bus Pass for Free Travel if you are:
- listed on a Health Care or Pensioner Card
- travel wholly within the rural area where there is only a fare-charging service
- must use more than one bus between home and school and/or school and home
- are under a Care and Protection Order.
The student fare last increased in 2022. This fare increase is set by government policy.
