Student fares

Passengers

Students can either travel at student concession rates or at no cost, depending on their circumstances.


Student

Full-time students attending a recognised primary or secondary school, senior secondary college, TasTafe, university or Tasmanian College of English are eligible for Student Concession fares until the end of the year in which they turn 18.

All student single urban trip tickets cost $1.70 per trip (or $1.36 with a Greencard). If the student uses a Greencard, their daily travel will be automatically capped at $3.40.

Students should carry appropriate student identification to validate their entitlement to Student Concession fares.


Adult Student

Adult Concession

Full-time students attending a recognised  senior secondary college, TasTafe, university or Tasmanian College of English are entitled to an Adult Concession fare from the start of the year in which they turn 19.

Adult Students should carry appropriate student identification to validate their entitlement to Adult Concession fares.

Special Circumstances Student Greencard

Full time adult students may be issued a Special Circumstances Student Greencard by the Department of State Growth which entitles the cardholder to either a Student Concession fare or free travel. For more information or to apply for this concession, visit the Department of State Growth website here.


Free Student Travel

If you are a student and have a concession card, or are in the care of a concession card holder, you can apply to the Department of State Growth for free student travel. Once your application is approved, you will be issued with a Free Student Greencard at no cost. Free travel applies on weekdays from 7am to 7pm. Outside the hours of free travel, the cardholder may use the card as a regular Greencard by adding travel credit to it.
