The Victorian Government will trial a new ticket to try to ease congestion on Melbourne's train services. The new early bird ticket will be available to travellers on the Sydenham and Frankston lines who reach their destinations by 7:00am. If the trial is successful, the free ticket will become available across the city's train system sometime next year.

Travelling to the city from Frankston, you'd need to catch the 4.17, 4.47, 5.17 or 5.47 trains. From Sydenham to the city, it means catching the 4.55 , 5.25, 5.49 or 6.09 services.
