Metro Tasmania is again offering free travel to seniors during Seniors Week.

Seniors can present their Greencard and Seniors Card to travel free on any Metro buses from October 13 to 19.

For seniors who don’t have a Greencard, Metro will issue one free of charge on production of a valid Seniors Card until October 12.

Acting Chief Executive Officer Alan Pedley is encouraging people to apply as soon as possible so they have a card ready for Seniors Week.

He reminds seniors that using a Greencard instead of cash makes sense all year round.

"Greencards make travel easier and quicker," he says.

"There’s no need to search around for coins or a paper ticket. Greencards also offer exceptional value, saving 20 per cent on the cost of a ticket."

People can apply for a Greencard online, by phone or at a Metro Shop, where cards can be issued straight away.
