Ticketing on the Broadmeadows Line

    The Broadmeadows Line is part of the Melbourne suburban network, and uses the system standard Metcard tickets.  There are 3 zones that are defined by the distance you are form the city.
   Only a Zone 1 & 2 ticket is required for a journey along the entire line.  You may travel as far as Glenroy ,from the city, on a Zone 1 ticket, and as far as Pascoe Vale, from Broadmeadows on a Zone 2 ticket.

    The old punch, and scratch tickets operated the same way as the Metcard, only they were issued manually, and not by a machine.  The old tickets designated Zone 1 as yellow, Zone 2 as Blue, and Zone 3 as Red, as they still are on the Zone map (right).  The current metcards, simply print this information on the back.
