Fare zone boundaries

This map shows the Metlink fare boundaries. To work out your fare, count the number of zones you will travel through, including the ones you will start and finish your journey in.

Journeys requiring a change of vehicle will usually require an additional fare, unless you use a transfer ticket or a ticket which allows transfers.

Not all fare zone boundaries are at a bus stop/train station.
