Hadspen to Hagley & Westbury
Westbus bus no.18 delivers school students to Hagley farm School (HFS). Interchange at Hagley Farm School (HFS) for bus #19 for Westbury Primary School (WPS).
The School Bus services are ONLY available for School Students.
Students will need to have a Student Greencard to use if they travel on a fare paying non-Metro bus service (this includes buses from Prospect and Hadspen to Hagley & Westbury school). Have you received your Greencard ?
What is the Student Greencard ?
The Student Greencard gives students access to a discount fare on non-Metro buses and works like an ordinary Metro Greencard on Metro buses (Metro terms and conditions apply). Students who already have a Metro Greencard need not apply for another card as they can use the one they already have.
What is the discount student fare ?
From 1 January 2012 on non-Metro fare paying buses the standard student fare will be $ 1.30. The discount student fare will be $ 1.00. To get the discounted fare, a student MUST use the Student Greencard. If a student forgets their card they may be charged the standard student fare of $ 1.30.
Who is eligible for the Student Greencard ?
Any full-time student who: is less than 18 years of age or turning 18 during the school year AND travels on a fare charging non-Metro bus service to and from school.
What does it cost ?
The first Student Greencard is free, but if it is lost or is stolen there will be a fee for a replacement card. A Student Greencard will be valid until the end of the school year in which the student turns 18.
How to apply
Fare Paying - If you already have a Metro Greencard you do not need to apply for a Student Greencard, you can use your existing card to access the discount fare on non-Metro services as well as using the card for Metro bus travel.
If you pay a fare on a non-Metro bus you will need to apply for a card. The application form is available from http://www.transport.tas.gov.au/passenger/student_travel or at Service Tasmania Shops.
If you will be travelling by Metro bus and do not have a Greencard you will need to apply to Metro for a Metro Greencard. Visit https://www.metrotas.com.au/greencard/login
