99c child weekend fares

99c child weekend faresWith a registered AT HOP card, children aged 5 to 15 years pay just 99 cents for bus and train travel on weekends and public holidays. You can make up to five bus or train trips over a four hour period across any number of fare zones with up to 30 minutes between each trip. Excludes SkyBus services.

For children under 5, bus and train travel is free when accompanied by a fare paying passenger.

If you or your kids already have registered AT HOP cards and your kids have child concessions loaded, you’re ready to go! Just tag on and off buses and trains as you do normally.

Setting up a child discount concession is easy, simply:

  1. Buy an AT HOP card.
  2. Create MyAT account.
  3. Register your child’s AT HOP card to get a child discount for 5 to 15 year olds.
  4. Start your adventure!

Please note, a child concession will be applied automatically when you register your child’s AT HOP card with the correct date of birth. It may take 24 - 72 hours after registration for the concession to be applied.

Use the AT Metro journey planner or AT Mobile app to plan your journey.
