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.
