Pensioner Excursion Tickets Remains


Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith reminds pensioners and seniors they can rest assured that they can keep buying and using Pensioner Excursion Tickets (PET) today and after 1 September when some paper tickets are retired.
When the Gold Senior/Pensioner Opal card is introduced later this year, fares will be capped at $2.50 a day for seniors and pensioners. Some pensioners and seniors may even pay less under Opal for short trips that don’t reach their $2.50 cap.
Customers will not need a credit card or the internet to use or obtain a Gold Senior/ Pensioner Opal card.
The Gold Senior/Pensioner Opal card will not cost anything to get, and customers will be able to manually top it up with cash if they want to.
Seniors and pensioners will be given a lot of information about how to get a new Gold Opal card, and how to use it, before it is released later this year.
“These customers will be able to continue buying and using PETs, after the Opal card is released, and well into the future,” added Stuart Ayres.
