Taxi

Melbourne taxis are easy to spot, as they display a lamp on the cab roof and most are painted yellow, silver or white. You can book a taxi cab pick-up for a set location, or take one from a cab rank at signposted spots. You may also hail a taxi in the street. If the rooftop lamp is lit, the taxi is usually unoccupied and available for hire. Rideshare trips are available via apps with Uber, Taxify and DiDi. Apps show fare estimate, driver’s picture, vehicle details, and can track your trip on a map.

Melbourne’s public transport is the easiest and best way to get around the city.

Trams, trains and buses

Buy a Myki smartcard for flexible travel between trains, trams and buses. You’ll be able to use public transport in and around the city for just a few hours or all day. Plan your trip, buy or top up your Myki card online and download maps and timetables from Public Transport Victoria, the one-stop shop for information about travelling on public transport (phone 1800 800 007).

City Circle Tram

The City Circle Tram is a free service around central Melbourne taking passengers past some of Melbourne’s major attractions. Visit Public Transport Victoria for timetables and a route map.

Bus Services

Melbourne buses run frequently to major hubs, including shopping centres, schools, hospitals, leisure and sports venues, and some of Melbourne’s biggest attractions. For people travelling further afield, Victoria’s V/Line service gives access to regional towns and scenic attractions across the state.

Plan your trip with Public Transport Victoria’s journey planner.

Bikes

Bike sharing is a great way to get around the city as an alternative to driving. It’s also healthier and more sustainable. The first ten docking locations of the Melbourne Bike Share scheme are now available, with 100 bikes in service and more to come.
