It is great to know and share that the public transport across Victoria is Free for the special festive day of Christmas and the New Years Eve of 2015 to welcome 2016. On the 31st december 2015, all public transport facilities would be free from 6pm onwards until the first scheduled service on the first day of New year 2016. This awesome freebie is to encourage and comfort the huge number of people travelling from and to the city on the new years eve for events and fireworks. Also we recommend, that on this day, public transport is the best option to travel around Melbourne. Wishing you all a great year ahead!
