Myki cards

Public transport requires use of a Myki card (other tickets cannot be purchased).

  • Myki cards cost $6 plus credit for travelling. They can be purchased (or topped up) online, at train stations, many convenience stores, major tram stops, and hotels may also sell them.
  • Myki fares are charged as a 2 hour trip in the first instance, which costs $3.58 in Zone 1. Travelling more than 2 hours later incurs an additional fare capped at $7.16 for the day (in Zone 1).
  • Myki cards should be touched on when you board and off when you alight.
  • Visitors to Victoria can purchase a Myki Visitor Pack, if desired.
