From Sunday 22 April 2012, Yarra Trams has adjusted the
timetables on 11 routes. The changes coincide with new timetables
on parts of the train and bus networks aimed at better aligning
public transport services and connections across the network.
1, 3/3a, 5, 6, 8, 16, 48, 64, 67, 72, 78/79
What are the key changes?
These changes coincide with changes to train and bus timetables
which took effect on the same day (Sunday 22 April 2012).
The St Kilda Road/Swanston Street corridor is the busiest tram
boulevard in the world with a tram every minute in peak times.
Regular reviews of running times are conducted.With recent
major infrastructure changes for these routes including the
construction of platform stops along St. Kilda Rd and the
commencement of the City of Melbourne's Swanston Street
redevelopment, journey times on all routes were analysed and
alterations made. The changes should improve reliability for
passengers in this corridor.
As our city changes, there is a need to review timetables and
services on an ongoing basis. In conjunction with Public
Transport Victoria, any necessary changes will be implemented in
April and October each year. Timetable changes for Metro
Trains, Yarra Trams and bus companies will be jointly implemented
at these times.
