CHILD / STUDENT CONCESSION FARES

Student fares will be deducted from the School Smartcard when Monthly Concession Pass (MCP - BCP/TCP/HCP) is not encoded. For Express and Premium bus services, Chinatown Direct, NightRider, and Nite Owl services, student fares will still be deducted regardless of MCP as it only covers basic bus services and trains.

With the enhanced concession scheme for children under 7 years old, child up to 0.9m accompanied by a fare-paying adult, and child above 0.9m with a valid Child Concession Card, can travel for free on basic bus services, Express/Fast Forward bus services, Nite Owl services, Chinatown Direct services, Weekend Bus Service 926 and trains from 3 August 2014. 

Free child concession travel does not apply to NightRider and Premium bus services.

Please note that if the Child Concession Card is not presented, child between 0.9m and 1.2m in height will need to pay student cash fare, and child above 1.2m in height will pay adult cash fare on basic/Express/Fast Forward bus services.
