Metlink's New 5 Weekend daily Travel Card $14.50
If you're visiting Melbourne during the holidays, or coming for a short stay anytime to see a Show, Festival or sporting event, or even if you live in Melbourne and don't use public trnasport regularly, from the first week in April, weekend train, tram and bus travel is set to become easier with the introduction of the 5 x Weekend Daily Metcard.
The 5 x Weekend Daily Metcard is a single ticket programmed with five days of Saturday or Sunday travel. It is similar to the normal 5 x Daily Metcard, but is specifically designed for travel on Saturdays or Sundays.
This new Metcard will dramatically reduce fares for many weekend passengers. It will cost just $14.50 which works out to $2.90 per day. For an adult travelling across Zones 1 and 2, it will mean a saving of up to $7.20 per day just by switching to a 5 x Weekend Daily Metcard. Passengers can use the 5 x Weekend Daily Metcard across Zones 1 and 2.
