If you're a Victorian senior, you may be eligible for a free myki and 50 per cent discount on travel.
The Victorian Seniors Card gives you:
- 50 per cent discount on a full fare
- free travel on Saturdays and Sundays in two consecutive zones
- two or four annual Victorian off-peak travel vouchers
- concession fares on V/Line trains and coaches.
You must have a Victorian Seniors Card. The Victorian Seniors Card is available to permanent residents of Victoria aged 60 or over who work less than 35 hours a week. It's issued by the Department of Health and Human Services.
When applying for a Victorian Seniors Card you'll also receive a free Seniors myki.
Interstate Seniors Cards
If you're a Seniors Card holder from another Australian state or territory, you can buy the following tickets:
- Concession myki
- Concession V/Line tickets (peak and off-peak)
- Other concession tickets (regional town bus services).
Seniors Card holders from other states and territories are not eligible for free weekend travel. Holders of a Commonwealth Government-issued Seniors Health Card are not eligible for public transport concessions in Victoria.
Seniors Day Pass
As a senior, you can buy a Day Pass for some journeys, instead of using your myki.
The Seniors Day Pass is a paper ticket that gives you one day’s unlimited travel in Zone 1+2 and on bus routes 782/783 and 787/887.
Using a Day Pass
When travelling with a Day Pass, you must show it to:
- the bus driver when boarding
- train station staff to gain entry or exit from a gated station
- an Authorised Officer when requested.
When travelling with a Day Pass you don't need to touch on your myki. You can only use a Day Pass can for the date on the ticket.
