Public transport in Melbourne
Everyone using public transport in Melbourne requires a myki card. The reusable smart card is easy to use. Simply top up before your journey and then touch on and touch off at a myki reader as you travel.
You can buy and top up your myki at close to 800 retailers including all 7-Eleven stores, the ticket office window at Premium Stations and staffed V/Line commuter stations, from a myki machine (full fare myki cards only) located at all train stations and major tram and bus interchanges.
