Fairer Fares in Regional Victoria with V/Line 

No matter where you live in Victoria, it will cost you the same daily amount to travel by V/Line, local trains, buses, or trams. The most you’ll pay is the same as a daily capped fare, which is currently $10 or $5 for concession. 

For shorter regional trips, it will be even less. And with weekend saver discounts, travel on Victoria’s regional network on weekends and public holidays, and your daily fare will currently only be $7.20 or $3.60 concession.
