Interstate Seniors MyWay card

Seniors Card holders from other states and territories in Australia can apply for an Interstate Seniors MyWay travel card using the Interstate Online Seniors MyWay Card application form. It is best to apply prior travelling to the ACT as you will need to allow 10 days for postage of your card.

Interstate seniors can travel for free using their Interstate Senior MyWay travel card on all Transport Canberra services during the off-peak travel period, which is between 9:00am to 4:30pm and after 6:00pm on weekdays, and all-day weekends and public holidays. Interstate card holders are not eligible for the over 70s free travel.

Interstate Seniors Card holders can also purchase a cash concession fare ticket from a Ticket Vending Machine located at all major Bus Interchanges and on the Light Rail platforms. You will need to show your seniors card from your state of residence, if requested.

For further information or for MyWay enquiries please call the MyWay Administration Office (02) 6207 7711 (BH) or visit the Transport Canberra website.

Travels funds can be added at the time of applying for your card online. Or you can add funds at a MyWay Recharge Agent or a Ticket Vending Machine, which are located at all major bus interchanges and Light Rail platforms. Note: the MyWay card must remain in a positive balance to access the free off-peak services. You are still required to tag on and tag off the bus and light rail even during periods of free travel.

Applying in person

For Seniors Card holders already in Canberra, Interstate Seniors MyWay cards can be obtained from:

You will be required to show you Seniors Card from your state of residence.

Putting credit on your Interstate Seniors MyWay Card

Interstate card holders will need credit on their card to use it on Transport Canberra buses.

Allow 3-5 days for credit to apply to your card via online top up. The funds will then transfer to your travel balance when the MyWay card is presented at a MyWay console.
