Concession Travel on the NSW Opal Public Transport Network Concession travel on the NSW Opal public transport network is now a whole lot easier for ACT Seniors Card holders. From Monday 31 October 2016, Transport Canberra has partnered with Transport NSW to automatically validate ACT seniors' eligibility for concession travel in NSW. Transport NSW has also removed the 60 day expiry on ACT seniors' Gold Opal Cards. COTA ACT has been working with Transport Canberra for close to a year to make applying for a NSW Opal Card easier for Seniors Card holders in the ACT. Seniors with an early ACT Seniors Card (i.e. one that has six numbers, as opposed to nine in the current cards) will need to apply for a card upgrade in order to apply for an Opal Card. New, replacement and upgrade ACT Seniors Cards are available from the COTA ACT office in Hughes, ACT Libraries and Access Canberra shopfronts. If you are over 60, a permanent resident of the ACT and working 20 hours or less each week, you are eligible for an ACT Seniors Card and a Gold Opal card, giving you concession travel capped at $2.50 a day* across Sydney, the Blue Mountains, Hunter, Illawarra and Southern Highlands. *Excludes Sydney Airport Station access fee. More information: http://www.cotaact.org.au/services/seniors-card-my-way
