Tertiary concession

All eligible fulltime Victoria University students will receive a tertiary concession on Metlink bus, rail and ferry services at all times.

The tertiary concession is a 25 percent discount off the peak adult Snapper or single 10-Trip Ticket fare on Metlink bus, rail and ferry services at all times. This doesn't apply to cash fares or monthly rail passes.

All full-time, or limited full-time (with appropriate evidence), students studying at Victoria University of Wellington and other Wellington-based Tertiary Education Organisations will be eligible for the tertiary concession.

Any queries about the tertiary concession should be sent via email to transport@vuw.ac.nz

The tertiary concession for all full-time or limited full-time Victoria University students will expire in February 2019. You will need to reapply for the concession at the start of the year as part of your 2019 study.

Bus

For students who use a bus to get to campus and wish to take advantage of the travel discount, you need to use your Snapper card to receive the tertiary concession.

If you haven't received an email from Metlink, you can register your Snapper card on the online Tertiary Snapper portal and provide the following information:

  • the 16-digit number on the back of your Snapper card
  • the CVV number on the back of your Snapper card
  • agree to the terms and conditions

When you next use your Snapper card on the bus, the Snapper reader will show the word 'tertiary' which will apply the discount.
