What are the COVID impacts on Public Transport?



Vline Train and bus routes are deemed essential services and most routes are operating according to normal timetables. No services will cross State borders into New South Wales or South Australia. Albury trains are replaced by buses from Melbourne which will terminate at Wodonga. Bus services between Albury and Canberra and between Bairnsdale and Canberra are suspended. Bus services from Bairnsdale and Narooma/Batemans Bay are truncated to run only in Victoria between Bairnsdale and Genoa. Buses between Swan Hill and Mildura are re-routed to not run via NSW. Buses from Victoria to NSW or SA will terminate at the last station in Victoria - ie those to Albury will start/terminate at Wodonga, Mulwala at Yarrawonga, Tocumwal and Griffith at Cobram, Moama and Denliquin at Echuca, Barham at Koondrook, Corowa at Wahgunyah, Adelaide at Liillimur or Underbool and Mount Gambier at Casterton or Dartmoor.

How to Travel with VLine

VLine trains and buses across Victoria have two different fare and ticketing systems depending where in Victoria you are travelling. All VLine trains between Melbourne and the major nearby cities (Geelong, Ballarat, Bendigo, Seymour and Traralgon) use the myki stored value card to enable you to pay your fare. You must have a
myki card
with credit on it to travel on VLine trains in this region. You can purchase Myki cards from any Melbourne or VLine railway station, from Myki vending machines at railway stations, major downtown tram stops and Melbourne Airport. You can also purchase Myki cards at 7-eleven stores across Melbourne's suburbs. You CANNOT purchase myki cards or add credit to a myki card on board trains.

You MUST validate your myki card before each train trip by 'touching on' at the lime green coloured myki validators or by using it to pass through the Myki station access gates. The validator will beep to confirm your trip is paid and valid. You should also always 'touch off' after you reach your destination. Myki fares are charged based on the number of zones you travel through.

If you are travelling on any VLine bus or on any longer distance VLine train beyond Waurn Ponds, Wendouree, Ballarat (towards Creswick), Eaglehawk, Epsom, Seymour or Traralgon, then you must purchase a paper ticket before you board. You cannot use myki to travel to these destinations. Trains that travel beyond those destinations also permit you to reserve seats at no extra cost. Whilst there is usually a carriage for passengers without reservations, we strongly recommend reserving your seat in advance on these trains. Note that even if you are travelling just a short distance and even if it is entirely within the myki fare zone system, whilst you can use your myki to pay your fare, you can still reserve a seat on these longer distance trains.
