Fares and Tickets

The Northern Territory Government is the public authority responsible for setting the fares and managing the Tap and Ride card system in the NT.

To travel on a public bus in Darwin and Alice Springs, you need a valid ticket or Tap and Ride card.

You can buy weekly or multiple trip Tap and Ride cards. The full fare card is green and the concession card is orange. Both are rechargeable.

You can’t use your travel card to pay another person’s fare at the same time as your own. Each person travelling will need to purchase their own card.
