LATEST MYKI INFO (END OF METCARDS TODAY*)
*As of today, Nov 30, you cannot buy metcards. You can still use unused, or monthly or yearly, metcards until end of the year.
As of Nov 30, you can't buy any ticket (metcard or myki) on trams
Myki - can be bought at all 7-11 stores & premium stations & on machines at some other stations & some tram stops, & the city PTV outlet at Melb Town Hall. Note: some stations & tram stops only have top-up machines. If a concession card holder buy at 7-11 or stations with attendants to get concession price & fares.
Myki Cards automatically deduct the lowest available fare. So you are charged the same, for example, as if using (former) Sunday Saver or a Weekend Daily, actually slightly less.
(These metcards were available for some years & many people didn't know about them, so i suppose that's one advantage of a Myki)
"Myki money" fares are based on the former discounted Value Metcard tickets. Fares are capped to the applicable 2 hour or Daily fare.
If you use myki to travel entirely within zones 1 and 2 on a Saturday, Sunday or public holiday, you will pay no more than $3.30 per day. Myki's used only after 6pm weekdays only deduct the 2 hour fare for whole night (until 3am* or last service).
(*You can use your Myki (or Metcard for travel on Nightrider Bus services on Friday & Saturday until 3am & will not be charged a new fare if you used it earlier and after 6pm)

Re other transport:
*Victorian Government & Melbourne Taxis have just announced a new cab share system with flat rates per person (think $20 pp inner suburbs, $30 pp outer suburbs). Will do a new post with that info & confirm it soon.
*The Night Rider bus services are being increased.
*On Christmas Day & New Years Eve public transport is free. You don't (i believe) need to touch on with myki on those days. On PTV website it says "Customers who accidentally touch on with a myki won’t be charged a fare"
If you have general question re above please post.
Any specific questions re Melbourne public transport and can't find the answer on above websites, you can message me (Chris Charles) via my profile. If i don't know the answer there's other people i know who will.
