Seniors Card holders

South Australian residents aged 60 or older may be eligible for a Seniors Card, which offers a range of benefits including public transport concessions.

The South Australian Seniors Card with the Adelaide Metro logo in the corner is also a metroCARD. You can use it on all Adelaide Metro services and need to validate it each time you board a service or pass through barrier gates.

Free travel for South Australian Seniors Card holders is available:

  • Monday to Friday
    • midnight to 7am
    • 9:01am to 3pm
    • 7:01pm to midnight
  • all day Saturday, Sunday and public holidays.

If you want to travel outside of the free times, you need to pay a concession fare. You can add credit to your metroCARD and the validators will deduct the fare when you validate your metroCARD. Learn more about how to recharge your metroCARD.

You can login to your online metroCARD account and enjoy the benefits of having a registered card using the number on your card and your email address.

You are welcome to remove your name and address from our system but we won’t be able to provide you with the full range of metroCARD management services. To discuss or change your privacy settings, call the Seniors Card Unit on 1800 819 961.

If you are having problems with your metroCARD account, please contact us.

Interstate seniors card holders
