  • How does a CityLink pass work?

    How does a CityLink pass work?

    A pass is a convenient option if you only use CityLink occasionally. 

    You can buy a pass before you travel or if you've already travelled, you can buy a pass within 3 days of your trip. For Weekend Passes, you have until midnight on the Tuesday after the weekend on which you travelled.

    There's no need to display a pass in your car, but you may want to keep the receipt for your records​.

  • I have a tag from Sydney or Brisbane. Do I need to buy a pass for my Melbourne travel?

    I have a tag from Sydney or Brisbane. Do I need to buy a pass for my Melbourne travel?

    All Australian tolling tags can be used nationwide, including on toll roads in Melbourne.

    Just make sure your licence plate number is listed on your account before you travel interstate.

    If you’re borrowing a car while in Melbourne, you can still use your tag. Just add the vehicle’s licence plate number to your account while you’re in town, and remember to remove it when you leave.

    It’s worth noting that Melbourne toll charges and fees may take a little longer to appear on your account than local trips.

  • How are trailers or caravans tolled?

    How are trailers or caravans tolled?

    Toll roads in Melbourne charge the vehicle towing a caravan or trailer, but not the caravan or trailer itself.

    The cost of your trip depends on your vehicle class and the distance you travel. Towing a trailer or caravan does not change the cost of your trips.

    Toll roads in Brisbane or Sydney may charge a higher toll, or issue a toll invoice, when travelling with a trailer or caravan.

  • What is my vehicle class?

    What is my vehicle class?

    The class of your vehicle, along with the distance you travel, determines the tolls you pay. It is important to know that vehicle class is determined by certain physical attributes such as vehicle size, seating capacity, construction design, weight/mass. Whether the vehicle is used for personal or commercial use does not determine the vehicle class.

    The vehicle classes are:

    Motorcycle:


    • A two-wheeled motor vehicle, includes motor vehicles with a trailer or side-car.

    HCV - Heavy Commercial Vehicle - any:


    • Two axle rigid vehicle with a cab chassis construction, with a gross vehicle mass that is greater than 4.5 tonnes;
    • rigid vehicle with three or more axles and a cab chassis construction that exceeds 1.5 tonnes;
    • articulated truck, or;
    • a bus seating more than 12 people.

    LCV - Light Commercial Vehicle:

    • Any two axle rigid vehicle with a cab chassis construction, with a gross vehicle mass that is greater than 1.5 tonnes but less than 4.5 tonnes.

    CAR:


    • A car is any motor vehicle, including if towing a trailer or caravan, that is not a:
      • Motorcycle
      • LCV
      • HCV

     

    Vehicle classes on Melbourne's toll roads are set out in the contracts both CityLink and EastLink have with the Victorian Government and are determined based on each vehicle's size, weight and configuration. These classes, first established for CityLink in the mid-1990s, are consistent across both motorways.
