Free Tram Zone | Melbourne CBD
Tram travel is free within Melbourne's CBD and Docklands:
Passengers whose entire trip is within the Free Tram Zone don't need to touch on their myki.
Passengers whose trip starts or ends outside the Free Tram Zone needs to touch on as normal.
The zone includes ALL trams within the boundaries of 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. Do not touch on or you will be charged a Zone 1 two hour fare. To receive a reimbursement you must touch on and touch off on the same tram while in the zone, and call the PTV call centre on 1800 800 007. Customers should allow 24 hours before calling to make sure their trip has registered in the system.
If your journey begins or ends outside of the zone you must touch on with a valid myki when boarding the tram.
Visitors & Tourists
Do not need to purchase a MYKI card unless they intend travelling out of the CBD or Docklands to places like the MCG, Arts Centre, Shrine, Royal Botanic Gardens, Zoo, Royal Exhibition Building, Melbourne Museum or Melbourne Park (Rod Laver Arena, Hisense Arena, Olympic Park).
A great way for visitors to see Melbourne is on the free City Circle Tram.
Information about the Free Tram Zone is also available via onboard brochures, tram hangers, network maps, route maps, tram shelter decals, tram stop signage, passenger information displays, onboard announcements, myki Visitor Pack, Yarra Trams and PTV customer service employees, Yarra Trams and PTV websites, PTV journey planner, social media and the PTV call centre (1800 800 007, 6am - midnight).
