A student can access the child student fare between the ages of 4 and 16 years without proof of concession eligibility.

From the age of 16 until the end of the year in which they turn 18, students can

  • access the child student fare as long as they are still studying full-time (600+ hours per year), and
  • are enrolled in an education facility recognised by the Department of Education.

These students may be asked to present student identification to access the child student fare.

In some circumstances, students may be eligible to travel for free between home and school during the school year.

In 2020, the standard child student fare is $1.80.  (Please note this fare is subject to change in the future).

A minimum discount of 20% on the child student fare is available if travelling on a bus service which uses electronic ticketing, or by purchasing a 10-ride ticket.

For information on ticketing, contact your bus service operator.
