Carer Card

With a Victorian Carer Card ('We Care' card) issued by the Department of Families, Fairness and Housing (DFFH), you are eligible for a Carer coded myki, which gives you 50 per cent discount on travel and free weekend travel in any two consecutive zones.

Cardholders who live in Victoria also have access to two or four free off-peak travel vouchers per year (depending on where you live). You'll need to register to receive these.

Off-peak travel vouchers can be redeemed for travel on:

  • metropolitan services at any time
  • regional services at any time, if the journey does not enter or leave Melbourne
  • regional services that enter or leave Melbourne on weekends or public holidays
  • regional services that enter or leave Melbourne between 9am–4pm on weekdays
  • regional services that enter or leave Melbourne after 6pm on weekdays

You will also receive free travel during Carers Week.
