Melburnians will now fork out a bit extra for their public transport travels, with Public Transport Victoria upping the price of Myki fares by 2.2 percent. The change came into effect on Tuesday, January 1.

Fares have been adjusted in line with inflation, impacting trains, buses and trams. And while no one is a fan of price hikes in general, 2019's annual jump is the lowest fare increase since 2014. In 2018, fares went up by 4.7 percent.

The new hike will see passengers shelling out between six and 20 cents extra per adult-priced journey across zone one, zone two, and zone one and two trips — for both two-hour tickets and daily fares. Myki passes will also increase in cost, with the smallest jump seeing travellers pay $30 for an adult seven-day zone two pass, and the biggest bringing 325+day zone one and two passes from $1683.50 to $1722.50.

Most concession fares have also risen, jumping between three and 10 cents on two-hour and daily tickets.

Regional Victorians travelling around their towns have been spared the price hike, with fares remaining at $2.40 for a regional trip within the same zone.
