We have just been informed that Transport Canberra has partnered with Transport NSW which means that ACT Seniors My Way card holders are entitled to concession travel in NSW using NSW Gold Opal Card. Therefore Seniors with an early ACT Seniors Card (i.e. one that has 6 numbers as opposed to 9 on the current cards) will need to apply for a card replacement in order to apply for an NSW Gold Opal Card.
ACT Seniors MyWay Cards which have not been used to travel on ACT buses for a period of two years or more, will have expired and should also be replaced.
Please allow up to 7 days for new or replacement ACT Seniors MyWay card registration before applying for a NSW Gold Opal card. Application for a NSW Gold Opal card, can be made online: https://www.opal.com.au/en/about-opal/opal_for_senior_pensioners/, or by phoning 13 67 25.
New and replacement ACT Seniors My Way Cards are available from COTA ACT Hughes office, ACT Libraries and Access Canberra Shopfronts as suggested on the application form.
