A student can only travel on a Student Concession Ticket when carrying an approved ID card. A fine may be imposed if a student fails to show their student ID card, even if they are a legitimate student. Improper use of a card can also lead to prosecution.
Part-time students are not eligible for a Student Concession Ticket. However, students on a low income or who receive government allowances may be eligible for alternative concession rates. The Department of Human Services can issue a Transport Concession Card to eligible students.
See the Adelaide Metro website for full details.
