From 01 January 2009 seniors, pensioners and carers have been able to travel for free on all scheduled bus services on the Territory’s public transport network. This initiative is part of the Northern Territory Government’s plan to extend the bus network and increase public transport use.
The Northern Territory Government has also announced that the FREE Bus Travel Package is providing free bus travel for Territory students from Tuesday 27 January 2009. Visiting Australian students will also enjoy free travel on the Territory’s school and public bus network. The free service is available to primary school students through to University students.
