Regional seniors will be able to apply for the NSW Government’s $250 Regional Seniors Travel Card from Wednesday, 29 January, which will ease the burden of travel costs for seniors living in the bush.
This card is about making it easier for seniors to access services, do their shopping and to stay connected with family and friends. Eligible seniors will be able to use their card to purchase fuel, use taxi services or travel on NSW TrainLink trains and coaches.
Eligible seniors will have a minimum of 12 months to use their card from the time of activation.
To be eligible to receive the $250 Regional Seniors Travel Card you must be an age pensioner with a valid Pensioner Concession Card or hold a Commonwealth Seniors Health Card issued by either the Department of Human Services or Department of Veterans’ Affairs. Seniors must also live in regional NSW outside Sydney, Newcastle and Wollongong City Council boundaries.
