Member offers: Discounted Yearly tickets
PTUA is offering discounted yearly Myki passes through Public Transport Victoria’s (PTV) Commuter Club. The offer is more than 9% discount on the retail price of a 365-day Myki pass which means that 12 months travel costs less than ten 30-day passes, so it is a great deal for regular travellers. If you are not a PTUA member, even after the $30 membership fee it is still a substantial saving.
The pass counts from the first time you touch on. It is refundable pro-rata from PTV under certain circumstances. The pass is registered under your name to protect the balance should the card be reported as stolen or lost and it allows you to access information regarding your card when you call the Myki helpline (13 6954). You can create an online account to manage your Commuter Club Myki. You can elect whether or not to have your name on the card.

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 a normal Myki by topping up with Myki money for travel in zones not covered by your pass. Note that the Myki yearly does not cover you for travel in other zones on weekends as the Metcard did. If your Myki has a negative balance you will not be able to use your pass until the card is topped up. When you receive your card you can create an online account to manage your Myki.
A registered Myki is allocated to a specific individual. Therefore it is not permitted to transfer a Myki to any other individual at any stage.
If a Commuter Club Myki is damaged, defective, lost or stolen you can apply for your Myki to be replaced.
For more information about Commuter Club Myki you can download the Myki FAQ pdf (192 Kb).
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. 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 expires. The zones can change from one pass to the next.
Once our payment clears with PTV, passes are loaded electronically to your account within 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.
What’s happening with VLine and regional travel
For now, Commuter Club Mykis are only offered for metropolitan travel – Zones 1 and 2. If at some stage it becomes available for V/Line travel we expect Commuter Club to similarly include regional areas.
