Travel across Victoria now more affordable

Every Victorian deserves access to affordable public transport across the state.
19 May 2023

The Victorian Government has introduced a regional fare cap from 31 March 2023. Reducing the cost of fares makes travelling across Victoria more accessible.

Tickets for public transport throughout Victoria are now capped at $9.20 (full fare) or $4.60 (concession) per weekday. This is the maximum daily cost of travelling anywhere in Victoria. No matter your destination.

For people with a Victorian Seniors Card, you are still eligible for a 50 per cent discount on trains, trams, and buses, including V/Line trains and coaches. You can travel on a weekday for no more than $4.60 per day. On a weekend or public holiday it is no more than $3.35 per day, if you travel through more than two consecutive zones.

If you purchased V/Line tickets either online or via the call centre to travel after 31 March, you will be refunded the fare difference automatically back onto the credit/debit card that was used. You don’t have to do anything, simply hold onto your ticket and travel as per normal.

If you purchased V/Line tickets from a V/Line station or Ticket agent to travel after 31 March, please return to a V/Line station to receive a refund on the fare difference.

To find out about the fare for your travels, please check the journey planner on the PTV website.
