Application forms are available from train stations or download it here.The cost of the concession pass is $9.00.
Both Myki cards and Concession cards must be carried at time of travel. Students may be fined if they cannot produce passes on request. School Id cards will not be accepted.
If you are a primary or secondary student and wishing to travel on the V-Line transport system you will need a Student Concession Card. The card provides great savings for regular travelers.

If you are a student aged 16 and under (and don't travel with a Student Pass) you can travel on concession fares. You do not need a concession card.
If you wish to use the student pass, then you must also have a Victorian Public Transport Concession Card.
17 years and over
If you are a student aged 17 and over, or 17 and younger and wish to use a student pass, you must carry a valid concession card.

The pass and concession card must be carried at all times when travelling.
Student Concession Cards are generally only available to Australian citizens and permanent residents.
