For free off-peak travel on Monday to Friday, start your journey by tagging on after 9.00 am or before 3.30 pm. This allows you free travel until the transfer period finishes, which is 2 hours for travel up to 4 zones and 3 hours for travel more than 4 zones.
If you tag on outside of the 9 – 3.30pm period you will be charged a concession fare.
You must tag on and tag off to receive your free public transport entitlements. If you want to use your Carer, Aged and Disability Support Pensioner SmartRider card outside the free travel period, you need to add value to your card.
