Regional Excursion Daily (RED) Tickets
What is a Regional Excursion Daily (RED) ticket?
The Regional Excursion Daily (RED) ticket is an excursion ticket for Pensioners and Seniors in rural and regional areas that allows multiple trips to be taken on the day of purchase on buses within the local service network.
For $2.50, a single RED ticket gives Pensioners or Seniors card holders the freedom to be out and about in the community all day. It’s one of the most affordable ways to:
- Visit family and friends
- Go shopping
- Attend medical appointments
- Get to a movie
- Undertake some volunteer work
How do I get a RED ticket?
RED tickets are available to people holding Pensioner Concession cards issued by Centrelink or the Department of Veterans Affairs, NSW Seniors cards and NSW War Widow/er Concession cards.
If you are a Pensioner or Seniors Card holder just ask the driver of the first bus you board for a RED. You will need to show the driver your concession card.
Once you have your RED ticket, you will need to show your ticket and concession card to the driver of each subsequent service you travel on that day. No further payment is required, except where the subsequent service falls outside those covered by the local RED area.
Things you need to know
- You will need to produce a valid Concession Card in your name to the bus driver to purchase a RED ticket, and upon request by an authorised transport officer
- You cannot transfer the ticket to another person
- You can only use the ticket on valid services up until midnight on the day of purchase
- You must not erase or alter information on the ticket
- You cannot use the ticket on other modes of transport or on services in outer metropolitan or metropolitan areas
