Bus Routes and Concessions are changing in Tasmania as a result of the bus network review undertaken as part of Project 2018.
The Tasmanian Government provides public transport concessions to ensure those most in need have access to essential services. Concessions are provided to students, people on low incomes, people with a disability, older Tasmanians and those who have served their country or community. As part of the changes to improve public transport a set of common concessions for adults will be applied across Tasmania, creating a fairer concession system for Tasmanians. These changes came into effect on 19 January 2020.
Previously there have been two sets of different concessions – one for urban areas and another for non-urban areas. The main change is that any concession card accepted on the urban network, will also be accepted on the non-urban network. Concession fares in non-urban areas will continue to be distance-based fares, set at half the price of a full adult fare.
