Off-peak and Concession fares using Snapper
Child, Tertiary and Accessible concessions have eligibility requirements, and need to be loaded onto your Snapper card to be used for discounted bus travel. Off-peak discounts and concessions can't be combined, but once your concession is applied, your Snapper card will apply the best discount automatically.
