Senior and Carers Cards
Seniors and carers can access cards to get cheaper public transport and discounts with businesses and venues.
You can get a Seniors Card if you are over 60 and retired or working less than 35 hours a week. With this card, you can get discounts at participating businesses, such as museums, restaurants and cinemas. You can also get discounted bus, train and tram rides.
If you are a carer, you can get a Victorian Carers Card. This card will give you discounts to services such as local aquatic, sporting, recreation and even some performing arts venues. This includes all Merri-bek leisure centres and pools.
You can check if you are eligible and then complete the Victorian Carer Card application form.
For more information call the Carer Card Information Line on 1800 901 958 during business hours only.
