A blank myki costs $6 and can be purchased from newsagents and railway stations. Topping up a myki can be done online through Public Transport Victoria website, or bus drivers can load up to $20 cash into the myki.

Once the card has credit, you simply swipe the myki sensor when boarding and departing all trains, trams, and buses.

Students who do not have a VPT card and request a concession fare can be fined by patrolling transport officers. A Federation student ID card does not entitle you to a concession fare.
