With a Companion Card, your carer or companion can travel free on trains, trams and buses when they travel with you.
You're eligible for a Companion Card if you need assistance when travelling on public transport. The card is issued by the Department of Health and Human Services. We also accept Companion Cards from other states and territories in Australia.
How to travel
Your Companion Card only gives your carer or companion free travel. You still need a valid ticket or free travel pass for your journey.
You and your carer or companion must travel together. You need to show your Companion Card to public transport staff if asked. Your carer or companion must be capable of providing you with all assistance you need, including any personal hygiene tasks. If not, they need to pay the usual fare for their journey.
If you're travelling on a V/Line train or coach, ask for a companion ticket and show staff your Companion Card.
How to apply
For more information or to apply, visit the Companion Card website.
A Companion Card with an Additional Companion sticker permits a total of two companions to travel with you free on Victorian public transport services - one via the Companion Card and one via the Additional Companion sticker.
To apply for travel on Victorian public transport services with one additional companion, you must hold a current Department of Health and Human Services issued Companion Card, complete the Additional Companion application form and have a health care professional complete the declaration.
