Off-peak fares for long distance services
Published: Wed 25 Jan 2017
Tickets on all long distance V/Line services will be charged at off-peak fares once the new timetable is introduced on Sunday 29 January.
This includes services which arrive or depart Melbourne during the peak period, such as the new 17:13 train from Southern Cross Station to Warrnambool and the new 16:31 train from Southern Cross Station to Shepparton, along with the 05:15 train from Shepparton to Southern Cross Station, which is currently charged at peak rates.
V/Line long distance services run between Melbourne and Warrnambool, Ararat, Maryborough, Swan Hill, Echuca, Shepparton, Albury and Bairnsdale.
Customers travelling on long distance services whose journey is entirely within the commuter boundary require a valid myki for their trip and will be charged at the appropriate myki rates.
Customers who have paid a peak fare for a long distance service from 29 January can claim a refund for the fare difference from a staffed V/Line station or by calling 1800 800 007.
