Discounted public transport for international students

Get the most out of your time in Victoria with an International Student Travel Pass (IST Pass)!

Eligible international and New Zealand undergraduate students can purchase an IST Pass at 50% of the full fare price of travel passes for either 90 days, 180 days or 365 days.

This includes unlimited travel on trains, busses and trams (if available) within your purchase zone and lasts for the duration of the pass from the day you first activate your Myki card.

Why not buy a Zone 1-15 (state-wide) pass and explore Victoria using our public transport network?

Prefer to stay closer to home? Get a Zone 2 only for Bundoora or a Zone 13 only for Bendigo and save money getting to your classes.
