Tickets and fares

Since Wednesday 25 March 2020, services in South East Queensland, including school bus services, only accept pre-paid tickets or go cards to reduce cash handling.

This means you need to use a go card or pay for a paper ticket at a station fare machine rather than purchasing a ticket or topping up on-board.
