Bus services

Victoria 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 system

Myki (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) including V/Line trains where your journey does not extend beyond Ballarat, Bendigo, Geelong, Seymour and Traralgon. In regional Victoria, it can be used on V/Line train services where your complete journey does not extend further from Melbourne than Ballarat, Bendigo, Geelong, Seymour and Traralgon. 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 or on the internet at Alternatively, you can set up automatic top-up of your Myki from your bank account or credit card, ensuring you will always have credit available for travel.

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, 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.

Children aged 3 years or under travel on public transport for free, thus do not require a Myki card.


Planning your trip

You may find it helpful to see the public transport options available in the specific town, city or suburb you wish to travel to or from. Locate a city or town and then view the "transport" section.

Alternatively, if you're not sure which train, tram or bus to catch, or you find your journey is too complex to plan using timetables alone, visit the Public Transport Victoria website. You will be able to specify your origin and destination and have the entire journey planned for you.
