Student bus passes
The two types of Government funded student bus services are free bus services and fare charging bus services.
Student bus services that operate in a rural area (wholly outside an urban or town area), and travel to the local intake area school do not charge a fare. These services are only available to child students, and do not require a Student Bus Pass for free travel.
If you would like to view the school intake areas within Tasmania, please refer to the Department of Education link to school intake area maps.
Students are required to pay a fare on bus services that travel to or from, or wholly within, an urban or town area.
Fare and ticketing information can be found here.
Students who travel on a fare charging service may be eligible for a Student Bus Pass for free travel, if they meet certain criteria.
If you would like to know more about school bus services generally, including operator details, routes and timetables, please see Student travel or contact Passenger Transport Contracts via email at email@example.com or by calling 03 6166 3343
