People with a permanent and severe disability can apply for a card that enables a carer to accompany them when they use public transport.

Companion Card - When a cardholder buys a ticket for themselves at selected venues and facilities around South Australia, it permits their companion free entry to the same event. This includes travel on public transport in metropolitan Adelaide.
The Plus One FREE COMPANION card - assists people who have severe and permanent impairments which limit their ability to use public transport independently. It allows them to be accompanied by a carer who travels free of charge on all Adelaide Metro bus, train and tram services.

Seniors Card members are entitled to concessions when travelling on all bus, train and tram services across Adelaide Metro public transport network and selected regional transport services as recognised by the South Australian Department of Planning and Transport Infrastructure.
Your Seniors Card is part of Adelaide's metrocard public transport electronic ticketing system which is operational on all buses, trains and trams. The card incorporates smartcard technology which means you only have to carry one card to access discounts on goods and services and public transport.
Seniors Card holders can travel free on bus, train and trams at all times other than the morning and afternoon peak weekday periods of 7.01 am to 9.00 am and 3.01 pm to 7.00 pm, where seniors discounted concession rates continue to apply (around 50% discount).
The new card features a cashless method of payment for travel during peak times. Simply add credit ($) onto your Seniors Card and the metrocard system will deduct the correct fare. Alternatively, you can opt to purchase single trip tickets, especially if you do not use public transport regularly.
Interstate Seniors Card holders visiting Adelaide can obtain a travel ticket for use during free travel periods by visiting:
- the Adelaide Railway Station Adelaide Metro InfoCentre, North Terrace, Adelaide
- Adelaide Airport's Information Booth at WHSmith Express on the ground floor arrivals area.
Simply show your interstate Seniors Card and you will be issued with a temporary metroticket for use during free travel periods which will be valid for a maximum of 14 days (valid from the date of first use).
For travel during peak times, interstate card holders need to purchase single trip magnetic tickets or a concession metrocard and add credit onto it.
If you hold a Concession Card you may be eligible for reduced price transport on Public Transport.
A Health Care Card does not entitle the holder to concession benefits on public transport. If you hold a Health Care Card you may be eligible for a Transport Concession Card through Concessions SA https://www.sa.gov.au/topics/care-and-support/financial-support/concessions/transport-concessions

1. Provide information on transport services available in the region*
Coordinate transport services for members of their communities, particularly for transport disadvantaged
Provide ad-hoc transport as a last resort where no other transport is available in the region and where resources are available to the Community Passenger Network
*for people who are: - unable to access public transport due to distance, mobility or availability of services, and - unable to drive themselves, and - unable to access another person to transport them The Community Passenger Network’s are funded by the Commonwealth Home and Community Care program and the Department for Communities and Social Inclusion.
This network provides the Medi-ride for hospital and doctor's appointments and the Community Shopping buses. The use of volunteers helps to make these programs low cost.
