Disability Support Pension and Carer Payment recipients

​If you're a Disability Support Pension or Carer Payment recipient, you may be eligible for free and discounted travel.

This includes:

  • a 50 per cent discount on a full fare
  • free travel on Saturdays and Sundays in two consecutive zones
  • free travel vouchers.

If you have a Disability Support Pension (Blind) Concession Card, you can apply for a Vision Impaired Travel Pass.


To be eligible, you must:

  • hold a Pensioner Concession Card coded DSP or CAR
  • be aged under 60 years
  • be a Victorian resident.

Only the cardholder is entitled to the concession discount and free travel - any dependents named on the card aren't included.

Free travel vouchers

You're eligible for annual free travel vouchers if you're a Victorian resident and a Disability Support Pension or Carer Payment recipient. Find out more and register to receive free travel vouchers.

How to travel

  • If you're eligible, you can buy your Concession myki at a staffed station. If you don't need to travel straight away, you can apply to have a free Concession myki sent to you. Use the Free Weekend Travel form below.
  • Your Concession myki will have the free weekend travel loaded onto it.
  • You must carry your DSP or CAR Concession Card and your myki when you travel.
  • If you're travelling on V/Line services or regional buses that don't use myki, you'll need to show your DSP or CAR Concession Card to pay the concession fare.

Not a Victorian resident

If you’re a pensioner from another state or territory, you’re not eligible for free weekend travel.

You can, however, travel on public transport in Victoria with a concession fare.

Aged over 60

Please visit Seniors Online to apply for a Victorian Seniors Card.

Once you receive your Victorian Seniors Card, you will be sent a Senior myki which will allow you to travel free on Saturdays and Sundays in two consecutive zones.

You’ll also be able to travel free during the annual Victorian Seniors Festival, that’s eight days of free travel across metropolitan and regional services.
