Melbourne CBD trams made free in 2015!

29 Oct 2014 - More affordable public transport from 1 January 2015

In 2015, Victoria’s public transport network will be more focused on you than ever before.

With a new Free Tram Zone in Melbourne City and cheaper fares when travelling across Zone 1 and 2, getting around Melbourne has never been easier, or more affordable.

The new Free Tram Zone includes the area from the iconic Queen Victoria Market, across to Victoria Harbour in Docklands, up to Spring Street and over to Flinders Street Station and Federation Square.

Travel on trams within this zone is free, and you won’t need a myki, however, if your journey starts or finishes outside the boundaries of the Free Tram Zone, you must touch on your myki at the reader in the normal way to make sure you have a valid ticket.

The Free Tram Zone signs at tram stops will identify the boundaries of the zone.

Also in 2015, you will be able to travel on trains, trams and buses across Zones 1 and 2, for the price of a Zone 1 fare.

If you’re only travel in Zone 2, you can still get the cheaper Zone 2 fare.

For customers travelling with a myki pass, from 1 January 2015, Zone 1 passes will no longer be sold. Instead you will be able to purchase a Zone 1 and 2 myki pass, which will cost the same as a Zone 1 pass.
