When completing this application you will need:
- applicant and student details, including date of birth, school and bus operators name(s)
- Centrelink Customer Reference Number from your current concession card (if applicable).
A parent or guardian applying on the basis of concession eligibility must be the card holder who receives the Family Tax Benefit (FTB) for the student.
Note: Where the student is less than 16 years of age and also the Concession Card holder, the online application system cannot be used, and a paper application with a photocopy of the concession card will need to be submitted. This is required as it is Centrelink's policy not to release concession details of a person less than 16 years of age.
*Before you apply we suggest you read the Student Bus Pass for free travel Guidelines and the Student Bus Pass for free travel Privacy Statement.
If you are applying as a concession card holder, the system will verify your eligibility with Service Australia (Centrelink) while you are online. For this reason applications can only be completed, Monday to Friday 4am to midnight and weekends 4am to 8pm.
