About Commuter Club discounted Myki Passes

PTUA offers discounted yearly Myki Passes through Public Transport Victoria’s (PTV) Commuter Club. The offer involves a more than 9% discount on the retail price of a 365-day Myki Pass. This means that 12 months travel costs less than ten 30-day Passes, so it is an excellent deal for regular travellers. If you are not a PTUA member already, even after paying our $30 membership fee the Commuter Club Myki still gives you a substantial saving.

Once your order has been processed, the Pass operates from the first time you touch on. It is refundable pro-rata from PTV under certain circumstances. The Pass is registered in your name to protect the balance should the card be stolen or lost, and it allows you to get information regarding your card when you call the Myki helpline (1800 800 007). You can create an online account to manage your Commuter Club Myki. You can also elect whether or not to have your name on the card.

Processing your order

The PTUA places an order with PTV on the 10th of each month for all purchases for which we have received cleared payment by the 8th. Please note this rule will be rigidly applied – no order without full payment cleared.

New Myki cards will be delivered to your address within 10 business days of PTV clearing the payment from the PTUA. If you already have a Commuter Club Myki, the new 365-day Pass will be available for loading onto your existing card within four (4) business days of PTV clearing the payment from the PTUA. Note: these are expected delivery/load dates after our monthly payment to PTV has been cleared – not from your date of purchase.

2015 fare changes

From 1 January 2015, Zone 1 fares will apply for travel between Zones 1 and 2. Zone 2 fares will continue to apply for travel only within Zone 2.

Until 31 December 2014, you still require a Zone 1 & 2 Pass for travel between Zones 1 and 2. However, people holding a Zone 1 & 2 Pass that extends beyond 2014 will be eligible for a partial refund in early 2015.

Back to Common questions

What if I already have a normal Myki card? How does a Commuter Club Myki differ?

You cannot use a normal Myki card. Commuter Club Mykis are coded to be recognised as Commuter Club for future reloads and to manage refunds. They do not incur the normal $6 card fee. You must purchase your Myki through the program.

Once you have a Commuter Club Myki it can be operated the same as any other Myki by topping up with Myki Money for travel in zones not covered by your Pass. Note that, unlike Metcard, the Myki yearly does not cover you for travel in other zones on weekends. If your Myki Money has a negative balance you will not be able to use your Pass until the card is topped up. When you receive your Myki you can create an online account to manage it.

A registered Myki is allocated to a specific individual. Therefore it is not permitted to transfer it to any other individual at any time.

If a Commuter Club Myki is damaged, defective, lost or stolen you can apply for your Myki to be replaced.

Back to Common questions

What if I already have a Commuter Club Myki?

You can renew your Pass by purchasing a new Commuter Club 365-day Pass on your existing card, providing your card is not due to expire within the next year. A card can have 2 Passes. The new Pass is activated the first time you touch on after the old one expires, and will take precedence over any Myki Money you have on the account. The new Pass will not activate until you touch on, even if your old Pass has expired. The zone/s in which it is valid can be changed from one Pass to the next.

Once our payment clears with PTV, Passes are loaded electronically to your account within four (4) business days. You will need to touch on (or check it at a Myki vending machine) to load the pass from your account to your card.

Back to Common questions

What about a Commuter Club Yearly for VLine and regional travel?

Commuter Club Mykis are only available for metropolitan travel – Zones 1 and 2. PTV has told us that Commuter Club will not be provided for travel on V/Line.

(However, a Commuter Club Myki bought for metropolitan travel can be used for occasional V/Line travel, using Myki Money for the additional zones.)
