Revenue protection and fare compliance
The Network Revenue Protection Plan is an annual document that governs fare compliance on the public transport network. The Victorian Fare Compliance Survey is conducted in May and October every year. The survey helps inform the Network Revenue Protection Plan.
Network Revenue Protection Plan
The 2022 Network Revenue Protection plan focuses on maximising the number of passengers who travel with a valid ticket while also providing high quality customer experience.
Fare compliance survey
The October 2022 fare compliance survey covered the three metropolitan modes of train, tram and bus as well as regional train services within the commuter belt.
Metropolitan network fare compliance was 96.9 per cent.
Ninety-seven-point-five per cent of metropolitan train users, 96 per cent of tram travellers, 96.4 per cent of metropolitan bus passengers and 95 per cent of V/Line train passengers travelled with a valid ticket.
Please note that COVID-19 impacts on patronage and social distancing prevented surveys from being conducted in 2020 and October 2021.
