Public transport within Melbourne

Melbourne has the Myki card for use on public trams, trains and buses. The Myki card has an initial cost of $6 and can be topped up at train stations, some tram and bus interchanges and at a number of retail locations. However, if you are only going to be travelling using trams within the confines of the CBD, you may not need to purchase a Myki as all tram rides within the free tram zone do not require the use of a Myki. You do still require a Myki card to use the trains or buses within the CBD.

If you are staying to explore Melbourne a little more outside the seminar, you may wish to look at purchasing a Myki Explorer pack to get a pre-topped up Myki card and discounts to some visitor attractions around Melbourne.

For timetables you can use Metro Trains for trains, Yarra TramsTramTracker App for up-to-the-minute tram arrivals or PTV for buses (and trams and trains).
