If you're a Victorian senior, you may be eligible for a free Seniors myki and 50 per cent discount on travel, as well as other benefits.
Your Seniors myki gives you:
- A 50 per cent discount on trains, trams and buses, including V/Line trains and coaches.
- Free weekend travel in any two consecutive zones and on regional town buses.
- Free travel vouchers in your welcome pack when you apply for your Seniors Card, plus two more each year if you live in metropolitan Melbourne and four if you live in regional Victoria. Find out more about free travel vouchers.
- Free travel during the annual Victorian Seniors Festival.
You're also eligible for concession fares with a Pensioner Concession Card.
- You must have a Victorian Seniors Card, 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.
- International seniors aren't eligible for a concession fare.
- The Seniors Business Discount Card doesn't give discounted public transport.
Interstate Seniors Card holders
- Seniors from other states aren't eligible for a Seniors myki, but can travel with a Concession myki. They can also buy concession V/Line paper tickets and concession tickets for regional bus services.
