Changes to buses

10 Jul 2020

Bus journeys will be made quicker and easier for drivers and passengers with the introduction of all door boarding over the next 18 months. 

This means that passengers can enter and touch on at any door, just like on trams, reducing congestion and reducing wait times at bus stops.

The first bus routes to support all door boarding are:

All door boarding is also available at the following interchanges:

  • Chadstone
  • Doncaster
  • Doncaster Park and Ride
  • Eastland (Ringwood Station)
  • Fountain Gate
  • Highpoint
  • Knox
  • Northland
  • Southland
  • Watergardens
  • Werribee Plaza

Passengers with a wheelchair, scooter or other mobility aid, passengers with prams and passengers with limited mobility can continue to board via the front door.

To support all door boarding, cash transactions on buses are no longer possible.

Before you travel, you can check your myki at a machine or online to make sure you’re topped up and ready to go. You can also top up your myki in the new PTV app.
