From 1 January 2011, Victorian seniors cardholders will receive free weekend travel on public transport when using a myki card.
The Victorian Government has also announced that the number of free journeys given to seniors living in regional Victoria will increase from two to four to use at their discretion.
Seniors cardholders were meant to receive their myki cards in the mail in January, but due to a glitch in the system, it has taken two million dollars to manually add one cent in value to each card and to attach newsletters to each mailout. Senior cardholders should expect to receive their myki card in the mail sometime in September.
