Join thousands of Merseylink customers by having your own TransportMe Smartcard and start claiming a 20% discount on fares today. These credit card-sized digital wallets will allow you access to an online account that stores your credit usage for any of Merseylink’s general-access services. TransportMe Smartcards make travel easier, faster, and cheaper.

When boarding a Merseylink bus, tap your TransportMe Smartcard on the driver’s ticket machine, let the driver your destination, and the driver will issue you with a ticket. The cost of the trip will be deducted from your balance. You do not need to tap off.

Your TransportMe Smartcard is set with information such as your concession details, so the correct fare is automatically deducted and you are debited the correct amount. When your travel credit is getting low, simply top it up with new credit. You can get a current balance by asking the driver or using the TransportMe Mobile App

All TransportMe Smartcards are free.

There are a number of benefits:

  • Every time you use your TransportMe Smartcard you receive a 20% discount on the selected single cash fare.
  • Because the passenger and driver do not have to handle cash, boarding times are reduced allowing the bus service to operate more efficiently and with less delay to passengers.

You can apply for a TransportMe Smartcard online here, in person by visiting Merseylink’s Head Office in Wesley Vale, or by phoning the office on 6427 7626 and asking to sign up for a TransportMe Smartcard. There is no fee to sign up.

The only cards accepted on Merseylink Services can be found here.

TransportMe Smartcards can only be used on general-access services. They cannot be used on dedicated school buses.

If using a TransportMe Smartcard, the cost of your journey together with your remaining credit balance on your card is displayed on the iPad facing the driver.
