Public Transport Victoria (PTV) has announced the annual fare adjustment for 2016.
From 1 January 2016, public transport fares will rise by an average of 3.2 per cent.
Most fares will increase by 1.5 per cent (CPI - Consumer Price Index), plus 2.5 per cent announced in the December 2013 Budget update.
The fare adjustment will keep fares in line with CPI and contribute to ongoing investment in a number of major public transport projects including the removal of 50 level crossings, Melbourne Metro Rail Project, and new trains and trams that will increase capacity across the network.
Following customer feedback, PTV will introduce a number of regional fare improvements from 1 January 2016.
PTV continues to offer discounted tickets for seniors, students and people travelling on the weekends and public holidays. The weekend and public holiday myki cap will remain at $6.00 for all-day travel in Zone 1+2.
Customers will continue to benefit from a number of initiatives introduced from January 1 2015 to make travel on public transport more affordable for Victorians.
Customers no longer need a myki to travel on trams in the Free Tram Zone and travel across Zone 1+2 in Melbourne is charged as a Zone 1 fare.
Public transport fares continue to represent good value, with Zone 1 myki money users paying $3.90 for a 2 hour fare. This represents a fare increase of just 10 cents in five years, when compared to the same Metcard fare in 2011.
Zone 1+2 customers pay $7.80 for a daily fare, a saving of $4.32 compared to the same fare in 2014.
