Passengers are reminded of the savings that can be made when traveling with a MyWay card. Discounts apply for card holders as well as monthly and daily fare caps. Adults travelling during peak times receive a discount of 36% when using MyWay compared to paying for a single cash fare. Further discounts are also available when passengers choose to top up their MyWay card using autoload or B-Pay.

From 14 January 2017, eligible senior and concession card holders (excluding student and tertiary card holders) will also receive free bus travel during off peak periods as part of a 12 month trial. Travel will be free on weekdays between 9 am and 4.30 pm, after 6 pm and all day Saturday, Sunday and Public Holidays. To be eligible for the free travel, passengers will be required to use their MyWay card and tap on and off the bus as usual.
