Buying a myki at a retail outlet

Buying a myki on board a bus
Buy a myki on board a bus within the myki area and top up to a maximum of $20. Routes 401 and 601 do not sell or top up myki cards.
If you're buying a myki card online or through our call centre you'll need to provide your postal address so we can send you the card. We'll delete these details within 30 days of sending you the card. Your myki will take seven to 10 business days to arrive. Once you receive the card you need to top up so you're ready to travel.
You can also register your myki. This protects the balance of the card if your myki's lost or stolen. When you buy a registered myki online or from the call centre, you can choose to print your name on it.
Buying a myki with an overseas credit card
Credit cards issued outside Australia cannot be used to buy myki cards online.
