Not producing evidence of concession entitlement when directed
Fine information correct as at December 2012.
Be sure to buy a ticket before you travel. Sydney Buses, Sydney Trains, Sydney Ferries staff and police can request to see your ticket and concession authority card at any time.
Travelling without a ticket or over-riding (travelling beyond the sections indicated on your purchased ticket), or not carrying your concession card with you is an offence.
Police and Transport Officers regularly patrol buses and bus stops and have the authority to issue on-the-spot fines.
So play fair by paying the fare, because now more than ever, getting caught is just a matter of time.
