Workers will be lured back into the city on Fridays from today with free travel, alcohol and sweets.
Melburnians will be offered free $50 Myki vouchers along with other incentives in an attempt to breathe life back into the city after last year’s prolonged lockdowns.
The ‘FOMO Fridays’ scheme starts today and will run for four weeks until June 4.
