Using ACTION 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 travel free.

ACTION uses 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.
