These cards are loaded with the adult concession fare of $2.50 per trip.  To receive the child concession discount of $1.60 per trip (for children aged 5 -14 or high school students attending a secondary school) please bring in your (or your child’s) birth certificate or secondary school photo identification card to the Northland Regional Council offices to have the concession loaded to your smartcard.

This concession will be valid until the end of February the following year (longer if a birth certificate is provided as proof of age being 5 – 14)  Northland Regional Council staff will contact students via Whangarei Secondary Schools in February each year to remind students to bring in their new photo id cards in order to continue receiving the discounted fare.
