The Tasmanian Government provides public transport concessions to ensure those most in need have access to essential services. Concessions are provided to students, people on low incomes, people with a disability, older Tasmanians, and those who have served their country or community. As part of the changes to improve public transport – a set of common concessions for adults have been applied across Tasmania, creating a fairer concession system for Tasmanians.
These changes came into effect on 19 January 2020.
Previously there have been two sets of different concessions for bus passengers – one for urban areas and another for non-urban areas. The main change introduced is that any concession card accepted on the urban network, is now also accepted on the non-urban network.
Concession fares in non-urban areas continue to be distance-based fares, set at half the price of a full adult fare.
