Regional Excursion Daily (RED) Ticket

The Regional Excursion Daily (RED) Ticket offers pensioners unlimited travel all day on most rural and regional bus services.

The $2.50 RED Ticket is available to Busways North Coast passengers, providing multi ride travel within the local bus network for older citizens and pensioners.

The RED ticket is available from drivers to those who hold a valid Australian Government Pensioner Concession Card, NSW Seniors Card or War Widow/ers Card (NSW or Victoria).

This ticket allows multiple bus trips to be taken on your route bus network on the day of purchase.

Day Travel Tickets (Valid on day of issue only)

Day Tickets are an inexpensive way to explore the Port Macquarie region by bus, offering good value and convenience for unlimited local bus trips within a one day period on one ticket.

All day travel tickets can be purchased at any time of the day from our drivers when you board the bus. There are two types of all day travel tickets available:

  • Day Ticket for travel in Port Macquarie.
  • Out Town Ticket for travel to and from Laurieton and Wauchope.

Transfer Tickets

If it's not possible to complete your journey without transferring from one Busways bus to another, ask for a Transfer Ticket when boarding your first bus. This costs much less than buying two tickets. The transfer must be made to the first available bus with one and a half hours from when the transfer ticket was issued. Transfer tickets cannot be used for broken or return journeys.

Travel Ten Weekly Tickets

Ideal for trips you make regularly through the week, a Travel Ten ticket allows you to make ten trips between designated locations within a week for less than the cost of paying for each trip.

Term Pass for Students

Term Passes give students who are not eligible for a Busways School Free Travel pass the opportunity to travel to and from school without having the hassle of paying a fare every day. By buying a Term Pass the cost of travel is actually reduced! Please ring your local depot for prices.

This pass is convenient for those students who may live close to school but want to catch the bus, either all the time or occasionally, for example when it is raining.
