myki pass

myki pass is suitable for you if you travel regularly.

Simply choose the zone/s you wish to travel in and the number of consecutive days of travel you need.

You can buy a 7-day myki pass, or anywhere between 28 and 365* consecutive days of travel. Your myki pass cannot be suspended and you must use consecutive travel days only. For example, a seven-day myki pass activated on Monday is valid for travel until Sunday.

*When you buy a myki pass for between 325 and 365 days, you only pay for 325 days.

Once you have a myki pass, you can travel as many times as you want in your chosen zone/s for the duration of your pass.

Touching on with myki pass

To use a myki pass you must have a positive myki money balance. If your myki money balance is negative, you will not be able to touch on even with a valid pass.

Your myki pass starts when you first touch on and touch off at a myki reader in a zone for which it is valid. Once activated, your myki pass expires after the number of days you selected, even if you do not use your myki on some of those days.

Your myki pass expires at 3am on the date shown. This information is provided on myki readers and myki checks.

You cannot choose to use myki money if you have a valid myki pass on your card. A valid myki pass takes precedence over myki money.

When you top up with myki pass, you have 12 months from the date of top up in which to activate the pass. Any myki pass not activated within 12 months cannot be used. You are able to request a refund of this unused pass value.

Your myki card can store two myki passes at a time. This means that when your current myki pass is almost expired, you can purchase your next pass so it is ready to activate when you need it. Only one myki pass can be active at a time.

Travel in other zones

To travel outside your myki pass zone, simply keep your myki topped up with sufficient myki money to pay for this trip. For example, if you have a Zone 1 myki pass and travel in Zones 1 and 2, your myki pass covers the Zone 1 portion of your trip and myki money pays for the Zone 2 portion of your trip.

Important note for customers purchasing a myki pass

From 1 January 2015, you will be able to travel in Zones 1 and 2 for the price of a Zone 1 fare.

This means a significant saving for everyone, including myki pass holders.

To ensure you are getting the full benefit of the change, in the lead up to the end of this year we encourage you to continue purchasing a myki pass, but not one that is valid beyond 31 December 2014.

If your Zone 1 and 2 pass is already paid up beyond 1 January 2015, a reimbursement for the Zone 2 component of your pass will be available. Details of the reimbursement process will be published soon.
