Fed Square is part of Melbourne’s Free Tram Zone, which includes the area from the iconic Queen Victoria Market to Victoria Harbour in Docklands, up to Spring Street and over Flinders Street Station and Fed Square.
Travel on trams within this zone is free, and you won’t need a myki, however, if your journey starts or finishes outside the boundaries of the Free Tram Zone, you must touch on your myki at the reader in the normal way to make sure you have a valid ticket.
The Free Tram Zone signs at tram stops identify the boundaries of the zone.
TAXIS AND PICKING UP/DROPPING OFF PASSENGERS
If you are accessing the Main Square the safest place to pick up and drop off passengers is the Taxi Rank across the road on Swanston Street. If you are accessing Deakin Edge, we recommend the Russell Street Extension.
