Seniors make the most of Adelaide Metro’s free public transport
11 January 2016
The State Government has welcomed a new study by the University of Adelaide showing that the Government’s free public transport initiative for Seniors Card holders has been a huge success.
The Government extended free travel for seniors to all times outside of the morning and afternoon peak weekday periods in December 2013.
The university’s study found on average, Seniors Card holders are making more than 150,000 trips on public transport in the Adelaide metropolitan area every week.
Public transport is a vital service for South Australian seniors, providing a safe, accessible, comfortable and affordable way to travel throughout the metropolitan area.
The results of the study are a resounding vote of support for the provision of free public transport to Seniors Card holders.
More than 350,000 South Australians are Seniors Card members and all are entitled to free public transport.
The South Australian Seniors Card incorporates Metrocard technology which means seniors only have to carry their Seniors Card to travel on the Adelaide Metro network.
Permanent South Australian residents aged over 60 and working less than 20 hours per week in paid employment are eligible to receive a Seniors Card.
Interstate Seniors Card holders can visit an Adelaide Metro InfoCentre, show their interstate Seniors Card and receive a magnetic ticket for free travel for a maximum of 14 days.
For further information about the Seniors Card visit www.sa.gov.au/seniorscard or contact the Seniors Card Unit, the Office for the Ageing, by emailing email@example.com or free call 1800 819 961.
