More bus fare options

Posted: 5 December 2014

Bus ticketing is changing to make public transport use in Darwin and Alice Springs easier and more convenient for passengers. From 15 December, the new ticketing system will be live on Darwinbus and ASbus services and new ‘tap and ride’ cards and fares will be on sale.

Fares will not increase and students (and other eligible groups) will continue to travel at no cost. More fare options for concession card holders and regular passengers will be provided.
