Overview

Public transport

Trains

Melbourne's metro trains run between the outer suburbs and Flinders Street Station in the city. The city loop is Melbourne's underground system, with five stations servicing the central business district: Southern Cross Station, Flagstaff (closed weekends), Melbourne Central, Parliament and Flinders Street. Southern Cross Station is Melbourne's hub for regional and interstate trains.

Timetables
Train services run 5.00am to midnight Monday to Thursday, and the Night Network runs all night Fridays and weekends. Plan your trip with Public Transport Victoria's journey planner.

Trams

Melbourne is the only city in Australia with a network of trams. Trams share road space on most Melbourne thoroughfares.

How to travel on trams
You can board trams at signposted stops showing maps, route numbers and a timetable. Route numbers show on the front of the tram.

Free Tram Zone
Travel on trams in Melbourne's city centre is free. See a map of the Free Tram Zone on the Public Transport Victoria website. Tram stops in the Free Tram Zone are clearly marked. If you start or finish a journey outside the Free Tram Zone, a valid myki card is still required.



City Circle Tram
Melbourne's burgundy and gold City Circle Trams offer free travel to city sights and attractions, with audio commentary on points of interest along the route. The route runs along Flinders Street, Harbour Esplanade, Docklands Drive, La Trobe Street and Spring Street. A complete journey takes around an hour. Trams run in both directions every 12 minutes from 10.00am to 6.00pm Sunday to Wednesday, and 10.00am to 9.00pm Thursday to Saturday (except Christmas Day and Good Friday). The City Circle Tram is not wheelchair accessible.

Buses

Melbourne buses run frequently to major hubs, including shopping centres, schools, hospitals, leisure and sports venues, and some of Melbourne's biggest attractions. For people travelling further afield, Victoria's V/Line service gives access to regional towns and scenic attractions across the state.

Melbourne Visitor Shuttle
Take the shuttle bus to key stops around the city between 9.30am and 4.30pm daily, for $10 per person. Kids under 10 travel free.

Travel information

Public transport

myki cards

myki is Melbourne's ticket to travel on the city's trains, trams and buses. It's a plastic smartcard with stored value which can be topped up and re-used again. Purchase your myki online at the myki website, premium train stations, retail outlets displaying the myki sign (including 7-Elevens), or by calling Ph 1800 800 007 (free from a land line) in Australia.

Visitor packs

For flexible travel, buy a myki Visitor Pack from Melbourne Visitor Centre, Federation Square, the PTV Hub at Southern Cross Station (cnr Swanston and Little Collins streets), SkyBus terminals and some hotels. Packs include a pre-loaded myki card with enough value for one day of travel in Zone 1, instructions on how to use myki, a Melbourne tram map and discount entry to Melbourne attractions.

Fare types

Metropolitan Melbourne is divided into two zones. Zone 1 includes all inner city suburbs and Zone 2 the suburbs well outside of the city centre. Travel across Zone 1 and 2 is included in the cost of your fare. Train travel completed before 7am on a weekday is free.



When you touch your myki on and off the electronic readers as you travel, an initial 2 hour charge will apply. If you continue to use the card for longer than two hours, a capped full day fare will be deducted from your card.

Children under 4 do not need myki cards.

Melbourne's Night Network offers all night public transport on weekends, with all night metropolitan trains and trams, late night buses, and a 2am coach service to key regional centres. Normal myki fares apply. For timetables and route maps visit the Public Transport Victoria website.
