Get on board this Seniors Week

The Tasmanian Government is helping senior cardholders stay connected with their communities this Seniors Week by offering free travel on any Metro bus from 12 to 18 October.

Minister for Infrastructure and Transport, Michael Ferguson said Metro was a long-time partner of Seniors Week, an annual campaign presented by the Council Of The Ageing (COTA).

“A key objective for COTA is to provide accessible transport for seniors and Seniors Week patrons who want to participate in the activities on offer,” said Mr Ferguson

“Metro plays a key role in keeping Tasmanians moving and connecting them with essential services, which is particularly important for the state’s older demographic.”

“The Tasmanian Liberal Government will continue to work with our community organisations to ensure we support those in greatest need.”

He said while this year’s Seniors Week would be different than previous years due to the pandemic, COTA Tasmania had worked hard to ensure all events on offer observed relevant COVID safety plans.

Seniors Week is the largest celebration for people over 50 in the southern hemisphere, and will run from 12 to 18 October, 2020.
