Topping up

Load myki Money onto your myki and it will calculate the lowest fare based on where you travel.

Remember to top up with enough money to pay for your entire journey. If your balance falls below zero, you won't have a valid ticket for your trip, and you won't be able to touch on. Find out how much to top up at Fares

If you register your myki, you can set Auto Top Up and manage your myki.

If you have Mobile myki you can set Auto Load via the Google Pay app.

You can also top up:


Your first touch on creates a 2 hour fare. If you're still travelling after 2 hours, you'll be charged a daily fare. A 2 hour fare is extended when travelling to and from regional Victoria, find out more at Regional fares.

Interchange on long journeys

Some trips take longer than two hours because of a transfer between services. If you expect your journey to take more than 2 hours, exit the barriers when you change and touch off, then re-enter and touch on again before boarding your connecting service. This resets the fare expiry and gives you more time to complete your journey.
