The State Government will provide free public transport on Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve to make it easier for Victorians to celebrate with family and friends across the state.

On Christmas Day metropolitan and regional public transport will run to a regular Sunday timetable and will be free from 3am Sunday 25 December until 3am on Boxing Day, Monday, 26 December, with Night Network services running through the night. Boxing Day will run to a public holiday timetable.

Passengers on V/Line services still need to book their Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve travel on reserved services – but will be issued a ticket free of charge. No ticket is required for regional bus travel. Passengers using a myki are not required to touch on and off and will not be charged if they do.

Victorians wishing to travel across the city or state to celebrate and welcome in the new year will be able to travel for free on all metropolitan and regional train, tram and bus services from 6pm on Saturday 31 December until 6am on Sunday, 1 January.
