Mayor Tom Tate said the expansion of the Free Seniors Travel program to include weekends was timely given the upcoming holiday season. “With more than 40,000 people already registered for the program, this is a great outcome for our seniors,” said Mayor Tate. “The program currently enables seniors and veterans to travel for free weekdays between 8.30am and 3.30pm. The extended program will also allow free travel all day long on Saturday and Sunday. “This initiative improves the quality of life for some of our more vulnerable citizens and empowers them to travel independently every day of the week. This is great news leading in to the holiday season. “Since the program began in 2013, more than six million trips have been made by Gold Coast seniors and veterans on Surfside buses. “It is important that we ensure our seniors and veterans have a safe, accessible, comfortable and affordable way to travel across the city.” continued page 4 >
