The Victorian Government is now providing half priced public transport for carers and free travel during National Carers Week, 13 – 19 October.
Since 1 July, Victorians who have a Victorian Carer Card and Carers myki have been able to get a 50 per cent discount on trains, trams and buses, including V/Line trains and coaches. There is also free weekend travel in any two consecutive zones and on regional town buses.
To be eligible for these concessions you must be a Victorian resident and have a Victorian Carer Card issued by the Department of Health and Human Services.
To apply, go to the Carer Card webpage.
