Changes to Victorian Public Transport

From 1 January 2015, there will be some fare changes to Victoria’s public transport system. An annual fare rise will be implemented in the new year to help us continue to improve the public transport network. A new Free Tram Zone will make getting around the Melbourne CBD and Docklands more affordable than ever. Travel on trams within this zone will be free and you do not need to touch on your myki. However, if your journey starts or finishes outside the boundaries of the Free Tram Zone, you must touch on your myki in the normal way to make sure you have a valid ticket.

From 1 January 2015 you will also be able to travel on trains, trams and buses across Zone 1 + Zone 2 for the price of a Zone 1 fare. For customers travelling with a myki pass, Zone 1 passes will no longer be sold after 1 January 2015. Instead you will be able to purchase a Zone 1+2 myki pass at no extra cost, which will cover all your travel across zones 1 and 2. .
