Ticketing & Travelling Without Cash Options
Tickets can be purchased on board the bus but with cash only. When boarding the bus advise the driver of your destination and if you are entitled to a concession. Please be sure to have a fare ready in coins and small notes as large notes cannot be changed. Retain your ticket until the end of your journey.
Ticketing & Fares
- Single / One Way Tickets: One way tickets can be purchased on the bus and if you are required to change buses to complete your journey a through ticket can be purchased when boarding the first bus which will save the “flag fall” component of buying separate tickets. You must retain your ticket and board next available service.
- Return Tickets: Return tickets can be purchased which the return journey must be used on the same day of purchase. Advise the driver when boarding if you would like to purchase a return ticket and the ticket must be retained for the return trip.
- Daily Tickets: A daily ticket is available which will allow unlimited daily travel. The correct daily ticket value must be purchased for the longest single leg of travel. Daily adult tickets start from $5.00 for short trips and are a handy option if you need to make several trips in a day.
- Adult Fares: Passengers 16 years and over without a valid concession must pay an adult fare.
- Concession Fares: A range of concessions could entitle you to buy a concession ticket which is half of an adult fare or free travel . To see if you are eligible please go to the Transport for NSW concession website. Please note concession entitlements do not extend to dependents listed on the reverse of Pensioner Concession Cards and we do not accept Centrelink Health Care Cards for concession travel. To claim a concession fare, you need to present your Concession Card to the driver when boarding the bus.
- Free Travel: A range of concessions could entitle you to free travel such a vision impairment or Veteran’s passes. To see if you are eligible please go to the Transport for NSW concession website. To travel free you need to present your Concession Card to the driver when boarding the bus.
We have RED (Regional Excursion Daily) tickets available allowing passengers to hop on and off the buses all day for the cost of $2.50. To be eligible you must be a holder of a:
