MyWay & Fares

Using ACTION Buses is a cost effective transport option for travel in and around Canberra, with adult, school student, concession and off peak fare options. Children five and under who are not attending school travel free.

ACTION Buses use a MyWay smartcard prepaid ticketing system as well as accepting cash fares. Riders can either scan a prepaid MyWay card or purchase a single or daily cash ticket on board the bus from the driver. All single fares entitle riders to a free 90 minute transfer period. This enables you to connect to a different bus or commence your return journey using the same ticket if within 90 minutes of purchasing your ticket. Daily tickets are valid until midnight on the day of purchase.
