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.
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.
