You’ll need a myki for your journey.
- If you use a myki Pass, you’ll need to choose the zones you want to travel in and the number of consecutive days you need when you buy it.
- If you use myki Money, your fare is automatically calculated as you touch on and touch off.
There are three fare groups, based on metropolitan zones: Free Tram Zone, Zone 1+2 and Zone 2 only. Find out more about zones.
Concession fares and free travel apply throughout Victoria. Find out if you’re eligible for concession fares and free travel.
Free Tram Zone

- If you're only travelling in the Free Tram Zone, your journey is free and you don't need a myki. If you accidentally touch on, you'll be charged a 2 hour Zone 1+2 fare. For more information, see the Fares and Ticketing Manual.
- If you start or finish your journey outside the Free Tram Zone you need to pay for your journey and use a myki.

- Travel entirely within Zone 1.
- Travel between the Free Tram Zone, Zone 1 and Zone 2.
- Travel between Zone 1 and Zone 2.

If you travel occasionally, pay as you go with myki Money. Load a dollar amount onto your myki and your myki will automatically calculate the lowest fare possible as you touch on and touch off.
