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.
If you tag on before 9.00am, you will be charged a concession fare for that journey. You will continue to be charged a concession fare until the expiry of the transfer period, this period being two hours for travel up to four zones and three hours for travel covering five to nine zones.
You must tag on and tag off to receive your free public transport entitlements. If you want to use your Seniors SmartRider outside the free travel period, you need to add value to your card.
