If you are a student aged 19 years or over who is enrolled in a NSW or ACT secondary school or is registered with the NSW Board of Studies as a full-time home-schooled secondary student or an Open Training and Education Network (OTEN) student, you are entitled to a half-fare concession.
To obtain the concession you must have a current NSW Tertiary Student Concession Card (Form 204) with a CityRail Transport security foil attached.
You must carry your current concession card at all times when travelling on a concession ticket so you can produce it if requested to do so by transport staff.
School student identification cards issued by schools and home school certificates issued by the Board of Studies cannot be used instead.
The half-fare concession is valid on MyMulti, MyTrain (excluding off-peak return), MyBus, MyFerry and Newcastle tickets and CountryLink services. The card also entitles you to a concession on special event buses and the Airport Line station fee. For concession prices, see the All Fares page.
Concessions are not available on light rail, monorail, premium, charter or tourism services. Privately owned and operated services may offer concessions at their own discretion. Check with the operator before travelling.
Travel concession cards are issued to eligible students by the school and are valid for the year of issue and until 31 March the following year (unless the student enters employment). To be valid, the card must have a current CityRail Transport identifier security foil attached.
Cards issued to students by a school require no application form, however students can apply for a card during school holiday periods, and home schoolers or secondary OTEN students at any time, at the Transport Passes and Concessions Office.
School holiday applicants need to provide some proof of identity, age and school, while home school applicants need to provide a copy of the Certificate of Registration issued to them by the Board of Studies NSW, which shows their year of study and their course load.
Concession cards when initially provided by the school are issued free of charge. However, replacements for lost, stolen or damaged cards are only issued by the Transport Passes and Concessions Office and attract a fee equivalent to the cost of a MyTrain (0-10km) weekly ticket.
To apply for a replacement card download the Student Concession Card replacement application form (pdf 94KB) or get the form from your school or at the Transport Passes and Concessions Office.
Applications with the required accompanying information can be delivered in person or sent by mail or email to the Transport Passes and Concessions Office.
A half fare concession on most public transport services is available to eligible tertiary students who hold a NSW Tertiary Student Concession Card. More information on concessions for tertiary students, including scholarship and exchange program students, is available on the Transport for NSW website.

CountryLink services are not covered by these tickets. For information on discounts available to international students on CountryLink services, visit CountryLink's website.
