Public transport for King's Birthday 2024

10 Jun 2024

Public transport services will operate to a public holiday timetable on the King's Birthday, Monday 10 June 2024.

Services will mostly run to a Saturday timetable with some alterations.

During public holidays, your daily myki fare is capped at $7.20 ($3.60 for concessions and seniors). You can enjoy all-day unlimited travel.

While some concession holders may benefit from free travel on weekends, please note this entitlement does not extend to public holiday weekend timetables. During public holidays, normal myki fare caps apply to all passengers, including seniors.

Plan your journey using Journey planner or view timetables for your specific line or route before you travel.

Before you travel

We strongly encourage you to register your myki. With a registered myki you can protect your myki balance if the card is lost or stolen, check your travel history and manage multiple myki cards in the one account.
