From Gympie North to Coolangatta, TransLink provides you with an integrated travel experience across all of South East Queensland.
You can purchase your seniors go card online or by presenting a Seniors Card issued by any Australian state or territory at a go card retailer. Queensland residents can also apply for a combined Senior Card +go.
We recommend registering your go card to protect your balance if your card is lost or stolen.
When registering your card you can also set up an auto top-up, so that when your go card balance falls below $5, it will automatically top-up with the amount of your choice.
