Welcome to Nowra Coaches


Tickets are issued for all fares paid. Please retain tickets until the end of your journey. An inspector may board a bus at any time to check tickets. When boarding the bus always advise the driver of your final destination.

Please Have Exact Fare Ready

Nowra Coaches drivers cannot change large notes, so please be sure to have the fare ready in coin or small notes where possible. This will help to reduce boarding delays and help you get to your destination quickly.


Children aged 15 years and over are required to pay the standard adult fare unless travelling to and from school in school hours. Where age and eligibility may be in doubt, proof of age and concession is the responsibility of the child or an adult fare will be charged.

Concession Fares

Concession fare authority cards must always be shown to the driver or a full fare may be charged. Nowra Coaches accepts a variety of transport concession authority cards issued by NSW State Government agencies and the Commonwealth Government through Centrelink. Sorry, we cannot accept Health Care Cards as a transport concession, nor can we accept cards issued for exclusive travel on State Transit buses and ferries in Sydney and Newcastle. For more information on concessions, visit transportnsw.info.

School Travel Passes

These are issued by Nowra Coaches on behalf of the Transport for NSW. Application forms can be obtained at your school office. Lost or damaged passes can be replaced upon application at the Company office for a fee of $15.00 (including GST).

Most students living in NSW and travelling to and from school are eligible for free travel upon presentation of a NSW Travel Pass. Free travel is available only on school days between the hours indicated on the Travel Pass. For more information see Free School Travel Passes.
