Free off-peak travel for SuperGold Card holders from 1
October

|

More than 500,000 New Zealanders will be eligible for free travel on off-peak public transport services from next week.

More than 500,000 New Zealanders will be eligible for free travel on off-peak public transport services from next week. 

Regional councils around the country are being funded to provide SuperGold Card holders with free off-peak travel on scheduled public transport services from 1 October. 

The SuperGold Card is available to all eligible New Zealanders aged 65 years or over and those under this age who receive the New Zealand Superannuation or the Veterans Pension. The card was launched in August 2007, providing access to business discounts, government and local authority services, entitlements and concessions. 

The additional benefit of free off-peak travel on scheduled public transport services within regions for SuperGold Card holders will be rolled out in most parts of the country from next week.

For further information on this initiative, including a list of regions scheduled to provide free travel from 1 October, see the 'Question and Answer' page(external link).
