Day passes

Greyhound's Oz-Flexi Day Passes are designed for the short-stay visitor who wants to get out of the cities and see the country. They let you go anywhere on the Greyhound Australia network and disjointed travel and backtracking is allowed, however there is a kilometre limit.

 

The basic day pass validity is for consecutive travel days. In other words it is not what would normally be called a flexi pass (even though Greyhound sometimes market the pass as one of their Oz-Flexi passes) and the number of valid travel days begins on the first day of travel.
