Let’s go to town

To get you in the festive spirit, Public Transport Victoria (PTV) are giving away 250,000 free public transport travel vouchers and Port Phillip Ferries are in on the action.

Free public transport for all city activities

To promote a safe return to public transport and reignite a passion for our city, you’ll be able to grab the gift of travel for a range of events and attractions throughout December and January

How it works

50,000 vouchers will be up for grabs for each of five different event categories such as Christmas events, galleries and attractions, dining, performing arts, and shopping. Vouchers will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

The vouchers will be available from 16 December, for travel from 18 December and will be emailed to you, so you can print, or display them on a valid device. The voucher will only be valid for your nominated day of travel.

Up to five people can travel using one voucher per valid email address. When travelling passengers simply need to show the voucher along with their valid Port Phillip Ferries ticket to the crew when boarding the ferry.
