How does it work?

The Access Travel Pass gives you free travel on:
- trains, trams and buses in metropolitan Melbourne
- V/Line train and coach services
- regional town bus services
- other services operated by Public Transport Victoria.
Customers should check if their free travel pass is accepted before travelling with an interstate or private operator. These include NSW TrainLink, Great Southern Railway, airport services, tourist railways, privately run bus services and chartered trains, trams and buses.
Carry your pass with you when travelling. You don’t need to touch on or off, but you’ll need to show it to station staff to go through station gates and may be asked to show it to public transport staff.
