Apply for a Child concession online

Registered cardholders can renew their child concession via the website, by filling out our online application form below.

Children using Green Snapper cards, or those who have a combined Snapper and Student ID card, do not need to apply for a child concession.

To be eligible for a child concession, Metlink’s requirements are as follows:

  • Passengers must be aged between 5 and 15. Please note under 5’s travel free on all Metlink services.
  • Passengers aged 16+ must be enrolled in secondary school to continue to receive the child discount fare. A child concession will be automatically applied if the secondary school attended has Snapper school ID cards.

If your Snapper card isn’t registered  you will need to log in to your existing account and select ‘Register a Snapper’, or create a new account and register the card upon account creation.

For more information on Child concessions and other options for applying – please see our information page here.
