Effective 1st January 2018

Public Transport Victoria (PTV) has today announced the annual fare adjustment for 2018.

From 1 January 2018, most public transport fares will rise by 4.7 per cent. This comprises an increase of 2.2 per cent (CPI - Consumer Price Index), plus 2.5 per cent announced in the December 2013 Budget update.

The adjustment will keep fares in line with CPI and contributes to the ongoing operation of the trains, trams and buses on our public transport network.

For regional Victorians, the cost of getting around town will remain unchanged, with the State Government capping the cost of a trip within the same zone at $2.40 for the third consecutive year.

PTV is also introducing a number of changes to concessions.

Free off-peak travel for Primary School groups

From 1 January, Victorian Primary School groups can apply for free travel between 9.30am and 3.30pm on metropolitan and regional services. This will make educational outings simpler and cheaper for schools and parents. Up to four accompanying adults can also travel for free with each group.

Free travel at weekends for caregivers

Access to free travel on Victoria’s train, tram and bus services for Department of Health & Human Services Carer Card holders ('We Care' card) will be extended to include Saturdays. This gives Victorian Carer Card holders the same weekend travel benefits as Disability Support Pensioners, Victorian Seniors Card holders, Disability Support Pensioners and Carer Payment recipients.

Zone 1+2 customers will pay $8.60 for a daily fare, a saving of $3.52 compared to the same fare in 2014, and $6.80 less than the current $15.40 daily fare in Sydney.

In addition, public transport will be free across Victoria on Christmas Day and after 6pm on New Year’s Eve to help people celebrate with family and friends.

For more information, see Concession.
