If you’re travelling on Night Coach, touch on at the myki reader at Southern Cross Coach Terminal. Touch off at regional train stations or on the coach.
Protective Services Officers (PSOs) are there to help those in need of assistance and detect, prevent and manage anti-social behaviour, crimes against the person, weapon and drug offences and property damage.
You’ll find PSOs patrolling at train stations in metropolitan Melbourne and major regional train stations.
