Free bus services plus extra services on ANZAC Day

The  Andrews  Labor  Government  will  provide  free bus shuttles and extra trains and trams early on ANZAC Day, to make it easier for people to get to the Dawn Service and pay their respects.

Mr Nardella said:

Travel  on  all  public transport in Victoria will be free for Veterans and War  Widows  on 24, 25 and 26 April 2016, to make it easier for them to get to commemorative events across the long weekend.

On  ANZAC  day  itself,  travel  on  public transport will also be free for members  of  the  Australian  Defence  Force,  Scouts and Guides as well as school students.

To  be  properly  identified  for  free travel, veterans and war widows can present  their  Department  of Veteran’s Affairs Gold Card, or Category “V” Victorian Public Transport Concession Card.

Veterans  and  War Widows are also invited to wear their uniform, including any service medals, or their ex-service association or returned from active service or war widows badge to show their eligibility for free travel.

The  bus shuttles are free for all Victorians. To find out pick up and drop off  locations, and book a seat, visit ptv.vic.gov.au/ANZAC2016 or call PTV on 1800 800 007.
