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 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.

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.

Key public transport regulations

The transport ticketing regulations provide a robust legal framework which outlines the obligations, defences, and penalties for ticketing offences, and support the Government's fare compliance and enforcement activities.

The transport conduct regulations establish an integrated set of conduct requirements for all Victorian public transport for the first time, by merging bus passenger conduct offences with train and tram passenger conduct offences.
