Bus servicesVictoria has an extensive bus network, covering suburban and regional areas. Services are provided by the state government owned V/Line and many other transport operators.
To see bus services in the specific town, city or suburb you wish to travel to or from, first locate a city or town and then view the "transport" section.
Special bus services are listed below.
Myki ticketing systemMyki (pronounced as "my key") is a new smart card which is being progressively rolled out throughout Victoria for travellers on public trains, trams and buses. It provides seamless travel between all modes of public transport in both metropolitan and regional areas of Victoria, replacing Metcard, V/Line and other related public transport ticketing systems.
At the moment, Myki is the only ticketing system in use on all forms of public transport in metropolitan Melbourne (trains, trams and buses) except for V/Line trains and buses. In regional Victoria, it can be used on V/Line train services where your complete journey is just within the suburbs of Geelong, Ballarat and Bendigo. It is the sole ticketing service on bus services operating within Ballarat, Bendigo, Geelong (including Bellarine Peninsula), Latrobe Valley, Seymour and Warragul.
The Myki reusable plastic card stores credit for public transport usage. It can be added to at any time at Myki machines, designated retail outlets, by phone, on the internet at www.myki.com.au or you can set up automatic top-up from your bank account or credit card.
Myki cards can be purchased from vending machines at railway stations, selected tram stops and bus interchanges, retail outlets including 7-Eleven and many newsagents, online from www.myki.com.au, or by phoning 13 69 54 (13 MYKI).
When travelling on public transport using Myki, you don't need to work out which is the appropriate type of ticket to buy or to have money on hand to cover the fare. Simply touch your Myki card on a Myki reader when you board and also when you leave your public transport and the best fare is automatically calculated and deducted from your stored balance. Note that it is not necessary to touch off when using trams as a default fare is applied, unless your tram journey is only within zone 2 and you wish to touch off to claim a cheaper fare.
Tourists coming to Melbourne may wish to purchase a Myki Visitor Pack. It includes a re-usable Myki card which is topped up with enough funds for unlimited travel for a day in Melbourne's zone one transport area, a map of the city and over $100 worth of discounts for many of Melbourne's major attractions. The Myki Visitor Pack is available from hundreds of locations around Melbourne including airports, tourist information centres, Southern Cross Station and many hotels.
