If you cannot access your PTV Concession form via myRMIT or email and you believe you are eligible, please contact Student Connect via the Ask about PTV concession form.
Step 4. Submit your form in person
Complete your form and submit it in person to PTV at a Melbourne Premium Station (such as Flinders Street, Southern Cross and Melbourne Central stations), staffed V/Line station or PTV Hub.

A limited number of additional passes will be made available on 6 March 2024. The application form will be made available on this webpage on 6 March.
Eligible students can apply for the International Student Travel Pass which is a discounted annual pass for use on public transport in Victoria. International Student Travel Passes are available for 90-day, 180-day and 365-day periods.

To be eligible for an International Student Travel Pass, you must:
You may be eligible for an International Student Travel Pass if you're enrolled in a full-time study load in one of the following programs and have a student card:
The following students are ineligible for an International Student Travel Pass:
You can only hold an International Student Pass for a period of time that is less than or equal to the duration of your enrolment in an eligible program. This means, if you are due to complete your program in 6 months time (180 days time), you can only obtain and hold a 90 or 180 day pass.
As a student, it’s your responsibility to ensure your pass does not exceed the expiry date listed in your electronic Confirmation of Enrolment (eCoE) in accordance with International Student Travel Pass requirements.
Eligible students are issued either a half year or full year form, based on their enrolment load. To obtain a full year PTV Concession Form, you must be enrolled in at least 75% percent of a full-time load in each half of the calendar year (Semesters 1 and 2). Students who only enrol a single semester cannot obtain a yearly Transport Concession Form.
If you enrol in more courses/subjects to meet this requirement before 1 July, a yearly PTV Concession Form will be emailed to your RMIT email address 24-48 hours after you increase your enrolment.
Please note, all transport concession forms issued after 1 July will expire at the end of February the following year.
If you have been sent two forms, it is likely because you are enrolled in two programs at RMIT. Students are issued a form for each eligible program they are enrolled in. You only need to print, sign and lodge ONE form to receive a Concession Card.
No, a student card cannot be used for transport concession discount.
Yes, if you hold a valid Health Care Card, you can use this to buy a Concession Myki.
No, the Transport Concession Form provided by RMIT can only be used to apply for Victorian Public Transport Concession. It cannot be used to apply for discounted public transport in other states.
If you are enrolled in a full-time study load in a Bachelor program, your PTV Concession form will be sent to your RMIT email account.
