The list of fees, fines and charges types
- fees for services and regulatory purposes, including licensing and registering certain activities
- fines for improper conduct, and to discourage unlawful behaviour
- fees and fines are officially set and revised by their relevant legislation.

Public transport ticketing and fares
Ticketing conditions for rail, tram and bus services in Victoria are outlined in the new myki and Victorian Fares and Ticketing Manual(opens in a new window), which came into effect on 1 March 2018.
The conditions detail the calculation of public transport fares, passenger responsibilities when undertaking journeys and other key requirements for people using the Victorian public transport system.
Public transport fines
Authorised officers are employed by public transport companies to ensure people comply with ticketing and behavioural rules.
This helps ensure the successful and safe delivery of public transport services.

An enforcement agency can address minor lawbreaking by issuing an infringement notice (on-the-spot fine) as an alternative to court prosecution for specified infringement offences.
The maximum court penalty is the maximum amount the court can impose on an offender from 1 July 2021. Infringement fines are lower than the maximum court penalty.
Although the Department has sought to make the lists as accurate and complete as possible, updates and revisions may be necessary.
