QR Codes on public transport

The Victorian Government has rolled out QR codes in more than 440 key locations across the public transport network and is now installing QR codes on trams, trains and buses. QR codes help keep passengers safe, support the Department of Health’s contact tracing efforts and helps stop the spread of COVID-19.

You will now see QR codes in a range of locations, including tram stops in the Free Tram Zone, Metro and V/Line stations, replacement bus stops (when operating) and on trams, trains and buses.

Please check in every time you see QR codes at stations, platforms and stops and while you travel on trains, trams and buses. You should also register your myki and touch on and off as usual to assist with contact tracing efforts.

To find out more about how to travel safely on the public transport network, please visit Public Transport Victoria’s coronavirus information page.
