During the trial, a single trip on a Flexilink service is cheaper than a Translink adult one zone fare.

Adults: $2 per trip

Concession: $1 per trip

Fares are paid in cash to the driver when you travel.

At the end of each Flexilink trip, the driver will ask you to sign off a cab docket showing the full meter cost for the Flexilink journey and the total cash fares paid.

Note: as go cards are not currently accepted on this service, additional charges will apply for connecting services (train, bus).

About concessions

Concession fares are only available on the verification of an eligible concession card.

You must provide proof of your concession entitlement when you first register for the service, and you must travel with your proof of concession entitlement to show your driver or authorised person when asked.
