In order to try and make up for the widespread train service disruptions on Tuesday, all Melbourne (zone 1 and 2) public transport (trains, trams and buses) will be free on Friday. Further information from Metlink.
Weekly, monthly and yearly ticketholders can apply for a free daily ticket from Metro.
V/Line users with a ticket that was valid on Tuesday can apply for a free travel voucher.
While we don’t expect that those who faced long delays will be placated by a free day’s travel, the PTUA encourages eligible users to submit a claim form. And we encourage you to make sure ensure the government knows that you care about public transport, and want to see more and better services. Make your voice heard.
