Travel Discount for International Students in NSW


18 February 2013

Public transport fare discounts for international students will provide savings of up to 35 per cent for travel on trains, buses, ferries and the light rail.

Discounted MyMulti2 and MyMulti3 tickets will be available to international students through their tertiary institutions, which will inform students of public transport ticketing options when they enrol. International students using these discounted tickets will not be required to apply for or carry a concession card while using public transport.

Choosing the right ticket

From early 2013, the following tickets will be available to international students at discounted rates:

Travel Pass Retail price Discount price Discount
 MyMulti3 Annual $2,367 $1,540 35%
 MyMulti2 Annual $1,976 $1,500 24%
 MyMulti3 90 Day $654 $440 33%
 MyMulti2 90 Day $546 $41025% 

Customers who use public transport frequently and who use CityRail trains to travel to or from outer-metropolitan Sydney or further afield may wish to purchase a MyMulti 3 pass, which is valid for unlimited travel on buses, Sydney Ferries, CityRail and light rail in Greater Sydney, the Hunter and the Illawarra.

The MyMulti 2 pass is valid for unlimited travel on buses, Sydney Ferries and light rail in Greater Sydney, the Hunter and the Illawarra, as well as a selection of CityRail services. More information about where you can use a MyMulti 2 pass is available at www.131500.com.au/tickets/fares/myzone.

Discounted MyMulti passes can be purchased as either a 365-day ticket or a 90-day ticket. For most customers, a 365-day ticket will offer the best convenience and value for money, providing a year of discounted travel on a single ticket.

All discounted tickets for international students can be used both for travel to and from a place of study and recreational travel.
