Guide to school student concession cards

Eligible students aged 16 years or older can use the Transport Concession Entitlement Card as proof of entitlement when using a Child/Youth Opal card within the Opal network, or when travelling on child or concession fares in NSW.

The Transport Concession Entitlement Card has replaced the following cards:

  1. Senior Secondary Student Concession Card (16 years and over) – also issued to Mature Secondary Students (18 years and over), Distance Education Students and Home School Students.
  2. Proof of Age card (when a student under 16 years of age looks older)
  3. Boarders Rail Pass

Students need to carry a concession entitlement card if they’re travelling on a Child/Youth Opal card or a child/concession ticket.

Children aged between 4 to 15 years do not require a proof of entitlement for concession travel. However, if they look more mature, they can get a Transport Concession Entitlement Card to verify to authorised officers that they are under 16 years old.
