myki is the new ticket for the Route 684 bus: effective Monday 17 June
Added: 3 June 2013
Paper tickets on-board Route 684 will be replaced by myki from Monday 17 June. So, if you haven’t already switched to myki, now is the time.
Travel will be made easier as Route 684 passengers will now only need one ticket to travel from Eildon to Melbourne and to other myki enabled towns.
You can buy a full fare myki for $6 or a concession, child or seniors myki for $3 from the bus driver (from Monday, 17 June 2013). This myki has no value on it, so you must top up via the bus driver (maximum $20) on your first trip.
For information on buying and topping up your myki see tickets.
It’s important to familiarise yourself with the fares listed below, so that you always have enough value on your myki for each trip.
Your myki will always calculate the lowest fare for your trip depending on the number of zones you travel in. Simply touch on and off each time you board and exit a vehicle to pay the lowest fare.
If you don’t touch off, you may be charged a default fare. The maximum default fare is a 2 hour Zone 1-11 peak fare, so $23.40 for full fare or $11.70 for concession.
Eligible passengers with appropriately encoded myki cards will also now receive some free travel on weekends when travelling within one or two consecutive zones (For example, a trip from Eildon in Zone 11 to Thornton in the Zone 10 or 11 overlap):
- Seniors, Disability Support Pensioners and Carer Payment recipients are entitled to free travel on Saturdays and Sundays. For more information, see free weekend travel (add links)
- Carer Card holders are entitled to free travel on Sundays. For more information, see free Sunday travel (add links).
Please note that V/Line tickets are still valid on this service until further notice.
