Please Have Exact Fare Ready
Priors drivers cannot change large notes, so please be sure to have the fare ready in coin or small notes where possible. This will help to reduce boarding delays and help you get to your destination quickly. Fare scales are displayed at the front of the bus.
Children under the age of 4 travel free when accompanied by an adult. Children aged 16 years and over and attending High School or Secondary College are eligible for a concession fare for travel outside school hours upon presentation to the driver of an appropriate photo ID issued by the school or college or a valid bus pass. If a valid ID is not available, children aged 16 years and over are required to pay the standard adult fare unless travelling to and from school in school hours. Where age may be in doubt, proof of age is the responsibility of the child or an adult fare will be charged.
Concession fare authority cards must always be shown to the driver or a full fare may be charged. Priors accept a variety of transport concession authority cards issued by NSW State Government agencies and the Commonwealth Government through Centrelink. Sorry, we cannot accept Health Care Cards as a transport concession.
Tertiary students may travel at concession fares upon the presentation to the driver of an appropriate photo ID from the educational institution.
Tickets are issued for all fares paid. Please retain tickets until the end of your journey. An inspector may board a bus at any time to check tickets. When boarding the bus always advise the driver of your final destination. Although you may be required to change buses to complete the journey, through ticketing is offered to all passengers. This means that you do not have to pay the "flag fall" component of the fare on the second bus boarded, just so long as you get on the next available service and you have retained your original ticket.

School Travel Passes
These are issued by Priors on behalf of the NSW Transport & Infrastructure. Application forms may be obtained at your school or at the Company office. Lost or damaged passes can be replaced upon application at the Company office for a fee of $10.00 (including GST).
For students who are not eligible for free travel to and from school, the Company sells weekly school tickets. These are more convenient than paying cash each day and may be purchased from the bus driver.
Most students living in NSW and travelling to and from school are eligible for free travel upon presentation of a NSW Travel Pass. Free travel is available only on school days between the hours indicated on the Travel Pass. For more information, visit our school free travel page.
