Community service organisations
myki is the ticket for travel on Melbourne's trains, trams and buses and V/Line commuter trains and buses in Seymour, Ballarat, Bendigo, Geelong, the Latrobe Valley and Warragul.
The Day Pass is a public transport ticket that eligible community service organisations can provide to individuals with a disability, or who experience severe disadvantage, where immediate access to public transport is needed.
What is the Day Pass?
*This ticket sample shows a valid Day Pass for 17 August 2014.
The Day Pass is a paper ticket on which the date of validity can be recorded by punching holes in the appropriate places on the ticket.
The Day Pass is not available for sale to the general public. It can only be issued by approved charities and community service organisations to clients they deem need immediate access to public transport due to the client’s individual circumstances.
A myki should, however, be used for regular or everyday travel, with a number of card types available to people with disability or welfare needs. For more information, see free travel passes
Recipients of Free Travel Vouchers can also redeem them for Day Pass tickets. For more information about this process, see Free Travel Vouchers
What’s included in the Day Pass?
The Day Pass entitles the holder to one day’s travel on public transport in Zones 1 and 2 in Melbourne, or on regional town bus services where myki is operating. It is not valid on V/Line services beyond Zone 2.
Travel with a valid ticket
In order for the Day Pass to be valid for travel, community service organisations must ensure that the Day Pass being issued is hole-punched with the day, month and year of their client’s intended travel.
A Day Pass that does not have the date of intended travel identified in this way is not a valid ticket, and the holder may be liable to be fined.
Using a Day Pass
Those given a Day Pass to travel must show it to station staff to gain entry to or exit from a gated railway station, to the bus driver upon boarding that service, or to an Authorised Officer when requested.
Passengers do not need to carry any proof of concession when travelling with a Day Pass.
Please note that Day Passes cannot be used to travel on any other day, other than the date specified by the holes punched in the ticket.
Can my organisation purchase Day Passes?
The issue and availability of Day Pass tickets for community service organisations is subject to strict eligibility criteria and successful application.
