Travel with Myki

Myki is your ticket to travel on trains, tram and buses in Melbourne and many parts of regional Victoria. You can top up your myki at hundreds of shops (including all 7-Eleven stores), myki machines, station ticket offices or online.

Up-to-date travel and ticket information can be found here:

Free Tram Zone

The Free Tram Zone in Melbourne's CBD makes it easier for commuters and tourists to move around the city. The principal boundaries of the Free Tram Zone are Spring Street, Flinders Street and La Trobe Street. Additionally, the tram routes along Victoria Street, William Street and Elizabeth Street that surround Victoria Market are also included as well as the Docklands area.All stops within the zone are clearly marked and tram drivers will make regular announcements when approaching the zone boundaries. Zone boundaries are signed and free tram zone maps are across the network. If your tram journey is exclusively within the zone, travel is free, meaning you do not need to touch on with a myki. If your journey begins or ends outside of the zone you must touch on with a valid myki when boarding the tram.

Tram Stop 7: RMIT University is accessible by the following routes

1: East Coburg to South Melbourne Beach
3: Melbourne University to East Malvern
