• Metrocard online top ups not available

    ​Metro would like to advise customers that due to the ongoing issues we are experiencing with our top up system the online top up system will remain shut down over the weekend. Our contractors and staff are continuing to work on the problem over the weekend.

    If you need to top up your Metrocard​ you can on a bus, at the Metroinfo kiosk at Central Station or at a Metro Agent. Click here for a list if Metro agents.

    We apologise for the inconvenience this is causing our customers.

SuperGold Card

SuperGold Card

SuperGold card holders travel free on all off-peak Metro bus and ferry service. It's our way of saying "thank you" to our seniors and veterans.

Off-peak travel is between 9am and 3pm, and after 6:30pm weekdays and all day on weekends and public holidays. When boarding, simply present your SuperGold card to the driver. If you're unsure about whether a particular service applies, give us a call.
