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 need 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. 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. The City Circle Tram service provides a free and convenient way to get around central Melbourne. Tourists, shoppers, office workers and families can use the City Circle Tram to travel to major attractions, shops and city events. The City Circle route is serviced by heritage W class trams decorated in special maroon and green with yellow and gold trimmings, as well as MMTB's standard traditional green liveried W Class trams.

 

The City Circle Tram travels around the city and links with other tram, train and light rail services in and around Melbourne. The tram will take you past shopping malls and arcades, and major attractions such as the Old Treasury Building, Parliament House and the Princess Theatre. Tourists can spend all day on a City Circle Tram! Information leaflets, including an 'easy to understand' map of the city are available on board each City Circle Tram. The City Circle Tram can be used as a 'hop on - hop off' service, this way tourists can enjoy each of Melbourne's sites and have the added bonus of traditional Melbourne transportation.
