Melbourne has moved to a new ticketing system called myki.
Tickets are no longer sold on trams, so passengers should purchase
and top up a myki before travelling.
Tourists may also consider purchasing the myki Visitor Pack.
How to use myki
Melbourne's new ticket system myki is a reusable smart card that
can store either a myki
pass (travel days) or myki money (dollar value) and
these are used to pay for your journey.
Before you travel you need to purchase or top up a myki. These
are available at selected retail outlets, at railway stations and
on-board buses. You need to have a positive myki balance to be able

There is no need to touch off on a tram unless your trip is
entirely within Zone 2.
For more information on myki visit ptv.vic.gov.au
