Travel on the TransLink network is free for children aged 4 years and under.

Children aged 5 to 14 years (inclusive) are eligible for a concession fare.

Children aged between 5 and 14 years travel free on the weekend when they touch on and off with an orange child go card. There must be money on the card (in addition to the card deposit), even when travelling free on the weekend.

Children who appear older may be asked to show proof of age, such as a school photo identification card.

Some school students may be eligible for the School Transport Assistance Scheme (STAS).

Travelling with children
