myki pass the new way to travel for Weekly and Monthly Metcard passengers
Weekly and Monthly Metcard passengers are reminded these tickets will not be sold after Sunday 25 March.
Transport Ticketing Authority Chief Executive Officer Bernie Carolan said passengers who use these tickets can switch to myki pass.
“Passengers who travel on a Weekly or Monthly Metcard have an equivalent ticket type under myki,” Mr Carolan said.
“Weekly passengers can top up with a 7 day myki pass, while Monthly passengers can top up with a myki pass valid for anywhere between 28 and 365 consecutive days of travel.
“The cost of a myki pass is based on the same discounted fare you are used to with Weekly and Monthly Metcards”.
A weekly Zone 1 Full fare myki pass costs $32.80, the same as a Weekly Metcard.
Mr Carolan advised passengers who are about to make the switch from a Weekly or Monthly Metcard to myki, to learn about the system and how these fares work under myki.
“I would urge all passengers about to make the switch to myki to learn about the system through the myki website and customer service staff who are currently on the public transport network,” he said.
“This is a big change for some customers and we want to make the transition as smooth as possible for passengers.
“The cost of myki cards was reduced to $6 for full fare passengers and $3 for concession passengers at the start of the year.
“Passengers can purchase and top up their myki with a myki pass at any 7-Eleven outlet across Melbourne, or use the myki finder at myki.com.au to find their nearest myki location.”
