A myki ticket makes it easy to get around by bus, tram or train while offering flexibility with unlimited day passes or single ride passes.

Ride like a local

Trams are a major form of local transportation, and the Melbourne City Tram runs directly to the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC). There are a variety of incredible tourist attractions within the free tram zone.

Hotel transportation service

Lions and Leos staying at LionsCon hotels that are not within walking distance of the MCEC will have free transportation options to and from convention events, such as shuttles or public trams. If you are staying at one of our hotels offering complimentary tram service, be sure to check with the host committee desk in the lobby for important details on how to get around town.
