Snapper card

Off-peak and Concession fares using Snapper

Snapper cards automatically get a 25% discount on regular adult Snapper fares when travelling Off-peak. You can also load a 30-day bus pass to your 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.
