The NSW government have recently announced the introduction of the Regional Seniors Travel Card.

The regional seniors travel card provides eligible seniors living in regional, rural and remote areas of NSW with a $250 prepaid card to help ease the cost of travel.

To be eligible for the card, you must be in receipt of either the Age Pension or the Commonwealth Seniors Health Card (for at least one month) and living in a designated regional area of NSW outside of Sydney, Newcastle and Wollongong.

The card can be used for pre-booked NSW Trainlink Regional trains and coaches, taxi trips and conveniently, fuel at service stations.

The travel card is valid for 14 months from the date the card is issued. The expiry date is available on the front of the card.

The regional seniors travel card program is available for a 2-year trial period (2020-2021).
