Public transport fares in Melbourne will increase on January 1st, 2018.
In a statement on their website, Public Transport Victoria said, "From 1 January 2018, most public transport fares will rise by 4.7 per cent. This comprises an increase of 2.2 per cent (CPI - Consumer Price Index), plus 2.5 per cent announced in the December 2013 Budget update.
"The adjustment will keep fares in line with CPI and contributes to the ongoing operation of the trains, trams and buses on our public transport network.
"For regional Victorians, the cost of getting around town will remain unchanged, with the State Government capping the cost of a trip within the same zone at $2.40 for the third consecutive year."
A daily full fare in Zone 1 or Zone 1 + 2 will now cost $8.60.
