**************************************************************************************************************************************

Students are required to use a Bee Card on some bus routes (see article 'Do I need a Bee card for my School bus?' in the FAQ section) – if using a Bee Card make sure that you have had your concession loaded otherwise you will be charged an adult fare.

If you are a student and paying by cash, please either be in school uniform or present your student ID to the driver to have your concession applied.

We’re excited to confirm that school students aged 5-18 years old will continue to enjoy free bus travel on all Bayhopper buses in 2022. From 31 January 2022 to 31 December 2022 this free bus fare trial will go from the current free travel during school hours to 24/7 free travel, so we encourage as many students as possible to take up this opportunity.

You must have a Bee Card (with child concession preloaded) to access the service free of charge and avoid being charged a standard fare. This means school children can continue to save at least $16 per week when using their Bee Card on all Bayhopper buses.

To apply for a Bee Card and get a concession loaded, please visit www.beecard.co.nz and plan your bus journey at www.baybus.co.nz.
