Public Transport Changes - 2017 annual fare adjustment sees concession changes

Following the Government review into ticketing compliance and enforcement earlier this year, PTV is also introducing a number of changes to concessions.

  • Age limit raised for concession fares – From 30 January 2017, the age limit at which people are automatically entitled to a concession fare is being raised from 16, to 18. This change means 17 and 18-year-olds who are not currently eligible for concession, can now purchase a Child myki and pay a concession fare, instead of having to pay the full fare.

Boulevard Lights

The Boulevard in Ivanhoe is one of Melbourne’s biggest and brightest Christmas lights displays.  Since the 1950s, residents have decorated their houses, gardens and windows with illuminating displays of lights, nativity scenes and everything Christmas. And every year, neighbours seem to go to even greater lengths to dazzle onlookers and put on a spectacular show, often with accompanying music.

 

The Boulevard Lights will run from the 10 - 24 December 2016 between 8.30 pm and 11.00 pm each night. 

Busking Opportunities during the Boulevard Lights
