Getting Around Melbourne

Myki
Myki is Melbourne’s ticket to travel on the city’s trains, trams and buses. This is a plastic smartcard with stored value which can be topped up and re-used again. Purchase your myki online, at selected train stations, retail outlets displaying the myki sign (including 7-Elevens). 


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 in the central business district: Southern Cross Station, Flagstaff (closed weekends), Melbourne Central, Parliament and Flinders Street.  

Trams
Daily trams operate within Melbourne including the Free Tram Zone area and the Route 35-City Circle (Free Tourist Tram). Travel within the central area of Melbourne by tram is free, though you will need a myki card if you plan to start or finish your journey outside this central area. For more information on the area covered by the Free Tram Zone, downloadable maps and the journey planner, go to the Public Transport Victoria website: http://ptv.vic.gov.au

Cycling
Melbourne Bike Share is a great option for short trips across the City. With unlimited 30 minute rides between stations, subscriptions start at just $3.00 per day.  Daily and weekly subscriptions can be purchased at the stations themselves.
