Concessions

NSW public transport concessions

The NSW Government provides subsidised or concession travel to a wide range of people. Target groups include school and tertiary students, jobseekers, apprentices, trainees, people with disabilities, certain ex-members of the Defence Forces, pensioners, seniors and war widows and widowers.

Free or concessional travel to eligible beneficiaries is available on:

  • Non-booked travel on buses, ferries, trains and light rail.
  • Booked travel on NSW TrainLink Regional services and Great Southern Rail services.

Transport for NSW's role is to provide advice to the NSW Government on concession policy issues and administer the contractual arrangements for transport concessions on regulated bus, train and ferry services.
