Question without notice....
I am not sure if this has been covered before, but I have a query regarding the Geelong Ballarat road coach service and Myki.
I am aware that both Geelong and Ballarat have gone 'live' with Myki on V/Line trains. But in a small number of weeks, I am travelling to Ballarat from Geelong on the coach, and return.
I have a vague idea that Myki is NOT valid on the Geelong Ballarat Coach for the full journey (except in possibly suburban Geelong and suburban Ballarat), but tonight when I had a look at the V/Line reservation section, I checked the fare total, then I read a message at the bottom of the page saying that Myki Pass
was available for the service.
The message I got at the bottom of the final page before clicking Buy was:
Please note: myki pass is now replacing paper periodical tickets for this journey.
I am just wondering if Myki Money
is available for the coach trip as well, or do I need to buy a paper ticket (in which case, I am happy to buy it online to save time on the day)?
I certainly don't want to be clocking on at Geelong, and clocking off at Ballarat only to find that Myki has charged me for the full rail trip from Geelong to Ballarat via Southern Cross when I could have easily have bought a paper ticket!
