Seniors

Victorian Seniors Card holders are entitled to a range of benefits on public transport services in Victoria.

This card is issued by the Department of Health and is available to permanent residents of Victoria aged 60 or over and who work less than 35 hours a week.

Please note: A Commonwealth Seniors Health Card cannot be used as concession ID.

Victorian Seniors Card holders are provided with a free myki which entitles them to concession fares on trains, trams and buses during the week.

It also entitles them to free travel on Saturdays and Sundays in two consecutive zones in metropolitan Melbourne (Zones 1 and 2) and on regional town bus services.

For more information about the free weekend travel entitlement, see free weekend travel.
