Seniors

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.

Eligibility

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.
