Myki Bus Travel Updates

Travelling on Woodleigh School’s Non-Contract Myki Buses

Valid Myki cards are required

All Woodleigh School students travelling on public buses must have a valid Myki card. These are not free buses and it is the student’s obligation to touch on and touch off with a valid Myki when boarding and disembarking. Fare evasion is a serious offense and can incur substantial fines. Non-compliance could also result in these bus services being withdrawn by PTV (Public Transport Victoria).

Student ID cards for students aged 17+

Students aged 17 and over are also required to carry a valid VPT School Student Id card or government-issued proof of age card (ie/ driver's licence, learners permit) to travel.

Cashless transactions

Please also note that cash transactions were permanently removed from Myki-enabled buses in 2020 in support of safer bus journeys. Alternatives available are:

  • Instant Myki money: top up via the PTV app
  • Online at
  • Myki retailers
  • Quick top-up machines
  • Myki machines
  • Ticket offices, including train stations and PTV Hubs

More information and application forms are available on the PTV website.

Pick Up Times

Please note that pickup times are given by Ventura Bus Lines as approximates only so students need to be at their stop at least 5 minutes prior to the pickup time listed on the timetable. To assist Bus Drivers to distinguish between the general public and Woodleigh School students, the bus lines also request that our students flag the bus down.
