Tickets & Fares



Myki is your ticket to ride on Metro. Simply keep your myki topped up and carry it with you, and you’ll always be ready to travel. Just touch on and off when you travel

Touching on and touching off

Each time you enter a train station, or hop on a tram or bus, you must touch on at the myki reader.

Train and bus users need to touch off at the end of each trip for the lowest myki money fare. When travelling on a tram, you only need to touch off to get the lowest myki money fare if your whole trip is in Zone 2.

How much does a myki cost?

A full fare myki card costs $6 and a concession, seniors or child myki costs $3.

For more information about how to use your myki, visit or call 1800 800 007.


Fares for travelling on Melbourne’s trains, trams and buses are separated into two zones: Zone 1 for inner-city and Zone 2 for the middle and outer suburbs.

Use the network maps to check the zones where your travel will take place and make sure your myki covers your entire journey.

Remember: Your myki must be valid for the zone travelled in; however, when travelling in a zone boundary overlap, your myki is valid for either zone.
