Primary school, High School and College students

School student MyWay cards can be purchased online, over the phone on 13 17 10, or by attending MyWay Recharge Agents.
Cards ordered online will be mailed to you and attract a postage fee. You will be required to enter the students personal and enrolment details to ensure that the card is registered.

When purchasing a student card from a MyWay Recharge Agent, you will be required to provide the student’s date of birth. Registering the card online is recommended to protect the travel credit in the event that the card becomes damaged, lost, or stolen. You can register any MyWay card by using this online form.

Combined Student Identification/MyWay cards

Students of Marist College, Canberra High School, Gungahlin College and Covenant College use a combined student ID/MyWay card. Students attending these schools should contact the school to arrange orders on their behalf, which will be delivered to the school directly from the manufacturer. Student cards will need to have value added before they can be used for travel. For information about your payment options, visit the MyWay home page.

Student Transport Program (STP)

The Student Transport Program provides eligible primary school, high school and college students with free bus travel Monday to Friday during school term.
Applications must be submitted to the Student Transport Program 4-6 weeks prior to the commencement of term to ensure processing can be completed in time for the student's travel requirement.
