Watch this page for regular tips on cycling, walking and public transport.
Metropolitan Melbourne’s public transport network is divided into two main zones.
Depending on where you are traveling from to get to Deakin will decide which ticket you need to buy. We have listed the following Zones according to transport type:
Please take note that the tram and bus inspectors are on the lookout for students who are traveling with a Metcard in the wrong zone or no Metcard. Ticket inspectors don't necessarily wear uniforms either, so remain vigilant and always travel with the correct Metcard.
Each ride on a 10 x two hour ticket is about 20% cheaper than a single ticket. Also, the second time you validate a 10 x two hour ticket on any day, it turns into an all day ticket.
As of February 18 2008, the ban on bikes on peak hour trains has been officially withdrawn. Cyclists are asked to use the last door of the last carriage where possible, and strongly advised to avoid the front of the train, where wheelchair users board.
