Melbourne’s train network consists of the metropolitan network, aptly named the Metro, and the regional V-Line services which connect the CBD, suburbs, and parts of regional Victoria.
Using Melbourne Trains
Finding Routes and stops
You can use the PTV website or APP, Metro Trains, City Mapper, and for regional services V-Line.
Paying for fares
- use a ‘myki’ card which you can use to ‘tap on’ and ‘tap off’ with fares deducted from the card.
- use a mobile ‘myki’ available for Andriod devices via the Google PayTM app.
- myki Explorer pack which is a one-day unlimited use card perfect for travelers.
- for V-line services some routes still use paper tickets which can be purchased at V-Line stations or online.
