Autoload and BPAY discounts on MyWay

MyWay users who register their card and recharge through autoload (direct debit) or BPAY are eligible for a 5% discount on their individual trip fares. The discount is applied automatically once the recharge payment has been processed.

The 5% discount is determined by the last payment method. For example, when a BPAY or autoload payment is processed, any trips taken after this payment will have the 5% discount applied. Should another payment method be received and processed (e.g. cash payment) the 5% discount will be removed until another BPAY or autoload payment is processed.

Please note that the 5% discount is only applicable to individual trip fares. The discount does not apply to daily fare caps.
