What is it?

Some ACT residents are eligible for concession travel on  ACTION bus services using the MyWay card.
Concession cash fares are also available. Concessions vary.  For full details visit the MyWay website.

Who is eligible?

Department of  Veterans Affairs Gold Card, Health Care Card, Pensioner Concession Card  holders, Seniors Card holders, ACT Services Access Card holders, ACTION Student  Concession Card holders and full time students.

From  1 July 2013 the ACT Government has reduced the eligibility age for FREE travel  on ACTION buses from 75 to 70 years of age.  Holders of combined Seniors  MyWay cards will have their travel entitlements on their MyWay cards  automatically updated to allow for free travel on ACTION services. If they have  not used their Seniors MyWay card within two years it may have expired.  Seniors can get replacement cards from ACT Libraries, COTA and Access Canberra Shopfronts. Seniors now eligible for free travel will be able  to transfer remaining credit on their existing MyWay card to another user, or  request a refund.  

For  more information visit the Transport Canberra website. Visit MyWay Concessions for full details of eligibility.

How do I  apply?

MyWay cards can be ordered online or purchased from MyWay recharge agents.
Concession holders are required to have their MyWay cards  updated to acknowledge their entitlement. To do this, concession holders should  attend a MyWay Recharge Agent. Concession holders will be required to present  proof of their entitlement (including current identification) to staff who will  then update the card for use.
A further 5% discount is available when cards are topped up  using autoload (direct debit) or BPAY.
Concession cash fares are available by showing an eligible  concession card when purchasing a ticket on the bus.
