Here's a handy breakdown of Victoria's public transport ticketing.


myki is your ticket to travel in Melbourne and from major regional centres including Geelong, Ballarat, Seymour, Traralgon and Bendigo. These reusable travel cards can be topped up with money before your journey and then touched on and touched off at a myki reader on trams and buses or at train stations as you travel throughout Melbourne. Always remember to touch on to have a valid ticket and touch off to pay the lowest fare.

A full fare myki card costs $6 and all concession myki cards (includes concession, seniors and child myki) cost $3. You can purchase a myki at a range of outlets and locations across Victoria. Visit the PTV website to find out more about myki including where to buy, top up and how to use myki.


If you are travelling from destinations beyond the regional centres above, you will need to buy a paper ticket. Tickets can easily be purchased online or over the phone and posted out to you ahead of your journey. Alternatively, you can visit a staffed V/Line station, a premium Metro station or ticket agent to purchase in person. Visit the PTV website to find out more about regional tickets. You can even reserve a seat in advance on some long-distance services. Your paper ticket will also cover some travel on metropolitan either side of your journey.
