Victoria's new ticketing smartcard - myki - is now working on Melbourne metropolitan trains, trams and buses.
Where can I use myki?
myki can be used on:
- all metropolitan trains, trams and buses within Zones 1 + 2;
- V/Line trains travelling:
- Wholly within metropolitan Melbourne Zones 1 + 2 , (between Melbourne and Ardeer, Deer Park, Rockbank, Melton, Diggers Rest, Sunbury, Craigieburn, and Pakenham).
- Within the Ballarat Transit System between Wendouree and Ballarat stations only;
- Within the Bendigo Transit System between Eaglehawk and Kangaroo Flat stations only; and
- Within the Geelong Transit System between Lara and Marshall stations only
Regional town buses in Ballarat, Geelong, Bendigo, Seymour and the Latrobe Valley.
myki cannot currently be used on:
- V/Line train and coach services outside Zone 2 (including Zone B); and
- other regional town bus systems not listed above.
For example, you cannot use a myki to travel between Ballarat and Melbourne at this stage.
For full details, please see the myki website.Can I still use V/Line tickets?
Yes (unless you only travel in Metropolitan Melbourne - Zones 1 + 2).
However, if you're like most V/Line customers and travel to regional Victoria outside of Zone 2, you need to keep using V/Line paper tickets until further notice.
Can I use a myki for part of my trip and a V/Line ticket for the rest?
No. You may only use one ticket per trip. This means that if you’re travelling to an area not currently served by myki, you must buy a V/Line ticket for the full journey.
When will myki be rolled out to other V/Line services?
Public Transport Victoria plans to extend myki fully between Melbourne and Geelong, Ballarat, Bendigo, Seymour & Traralgon (V/Line’s interurban locations) in 2013. When timing has been confirmed, customers will be given advance notice to make the ticketing switch.
