SENIORS Card holders will travel free on Action buses during ACT Seniors Week – Sunday, March 16 to Sunday, March 23, inclusive.
Territory and Municipal Services Minister, Shane Rattenbury, says the MyWay ticketing system will automatically provide free bus travel to ACT and interstate Seniors MyWay card holders during the week.
“Patrons with combined Seniors MyWay cards will need to tag on at the beginning and tag off at the end of their journey to ensure no fare is deducted. This will also help provide valuable data about where passengers get on and off for future network planning,” said Mr Rattenbury.
“Seniors who do not have a combined ACT or Interstate Seniors MyWay card will still be able to travel for free during Seniors Week by presenting their Seniors Card to the driver.”
Mr Rattenbury said seniors interested in arranging a combined ACT Seniors MyWay card should visit any Canberra Connect Shopfront, ACT Public Library or the Council on the Ageing office in Hughes.
“We recognise that providing good public transport for older Canberrans is one of the best ways to build and maintain an age-friendly city,” said Mr Rattenbury.
