Changes to CityRail fares

Posted: Thursday 15 December 2011

The Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal (IPART) today announced a fare increase to take effect from Monday 2 January 2012.

Single MyTrain tickets will increase in price between 20 cents and 40 cents. MyTrain weekly tickets will increase in price between $1 and $3.

We recommend customers allow extra time to purchase their ticket on Tuesday 3 January 2012, as many people will be returning to work.

The table below outlines the changes to CityRail fares. Fare calculator data on this website will be updated when the changes are introduced.
