Hi everyone. This is my first thread that i started and its with a question. If this is not in the right place, please feel free to merge it with another thread (just tell me whict thread its been merged with).

ok heres the question
I am travelling to a party at Doltone House on monday night (16/9/13). Can i buy a student ticket from Hurstville to Star City travelling via rail and light rail return? the fare calculator doesn't seem to give me student tickets.

Also can this be done via the ticket machines or do i have to go to the counter?

Thanks

AFAIK no, as there is no student concession on the Light rail.

Edit: http://www.131500.com.au/tickets/fares/mytram-light-rail

*Concessions are available to people aged 6-15 years, pensioners, NSW war widows/ers and NSW Seniors card holders. Children 5 years and under travel free. Student fares are not available on Light rail services (some exceptions apply).

You can not buy a direct ticket to Star City via the Light Rail at a CityRail Station - Only MyMulti/Pensioner Excursion tickets have this.

You will need to buy a concession Zone 2 Return ticket to Star City from on-board the tram, and a return to Central for the train.

I'm quite sure, so long as you have the required documentation, there is a concession fare payable.

You will qualify for a student concession fare from Hurstville to Central, but not from Central to Star City.

You should be able to purchase the TramLink ticket from a ticket machine.

You have the alternative choice, however, of taking the 443 from QVB to Star City. Take a train from Hurstville to Town Hall, then alight and exit through QVB onto York St. Look for Stand B, and hop on the 443 to Star City. Student concession fares are available upon presenting your student card with concession sticker, and the concession fare is $1.10. (Or, go to a newsagent and buy a "MyBus 1 Concession Single". Regurgitate the exact string.)

Enjoy your party, and rest assured the tram and buses operate in both directions so you'll be able to go home. If you can still remember where it is, anyway.
