Getting around in Melbourne is easy. Melbourne's network of trams, trains and bus services run frequently around the clock.
You will need to buy a myki card if you want to travel on public transport in Melbourne. myki can also be used on regional train services, such as V/Line, which travel beyond Melbourne.
myki is a reusable ‘smart’ card which stores money value to pay for your journey on buses, trams and trains. Your myki card has no money on it when you buy it. You have to 'top up' your myki card with money before you can travel.
Visit Public Transport Victoria’s website for more details about using a myki card.
