YOURLifeChoices member Roger is looking forward to a trip to Sydney and is keen to take advantage of interstate travel concessions, but is unsure where to find information and buy tickets.
My wife and I are going to Sydney in November this year and I have read that seniors get half-price fares on public transport. I have found no information on where you can purchase the tickets. We are staying at a hotel near Erskine Street and I would be most grateful if you could inform me of the closest place to buy pre-paid tickets.
A. Seniors Card holders can access public transport concessions when travelling interstate. In NSW this includes half-fare concessions on government-operated rail, bus and ferry services, private bus services and some private ferry services. To find out more about half fare concessions, visit NSW Transport Info.
There are also three different cheap daily excursion tickets, which cost $2.50. To find details of the routes covered by these tickets, visit NSW Transport Info.
Purchasing your tickets can be done at any transport station in Sydney. You can find the nearest station by using the interactive map on the NSW Transport website, or by calling 131 500.
