Travel Pass

The Travel Pass is a short-term ticket issued for one, seven or 30 days of travel that gives you free travel on all trains, trams and buses in metropolitan Melbourne and on some regional town buses.

It's issued by a community service organisation or charity, authorised by PTV.

It's also issued at premium stations and at PTV Hubs, in exchange for a free travel voucher (1 Day Travel Pass only).

Drivers on Mornington Peninsula bus routes 787 and 788 can also sell the 1 Day Travel Pass to passengers who present their Victorian Seniors Card and pay a fare of $4.30.
