Routes 8 and 70 - Run Melbourne Marathon - Sunday 15 July

Due to the Run Melbourne event the following service changes will apply from first tram to approximately 11:00am on Sunday 15 July:

Route 8 trams will operate as Route 8a between Stop 133 Moreland Terminus and Stop 25 Commercial and St Kilda Roads.

A tram replacement bus service will operate between Stop 21 Bowen Crescent and St Kilda Road, and Stop 43 Toorak Terminus, travelling via St Kilda Road and Toorak Road.

The following stops will not be serviced by the tram replacement bus:

  • Stop 21 - Dallas Brooks Drive & Domain Road
  • Stop 22 - Melbourne Grammar School
  • Stop 23 - Hope Street & Domain Road
  • Stop 24 - Domain Road & Park Street
  • Stop 25 - Randall Place & Park Street

The following tram stops will be replaced with temporary bus stops nearby:

  • Stop 26 - in Toorak Road, 15m from Park Street (to Toorak only)
  • Stop 43 - in Toorak Road, 15m from Grosvenor Court

All other tram stops will be serviced by the tram replacement bus service.

Route 70 tram services will operate as Route 70a in two sections:

Docklands terminus to Stop 6 Russell and Flinders Streets, and;
Wattle Park terminus - Stop 7B Rod Laver Arena

To connect between the two sections customers may wish to consider catching a Metro Trains service between Flinders Street Station and Richmond Station.

Due to these changes, tram services will operate to their normal frequency, however they may not arrive at the scheduled time. Yarra Trams suggests that you allow extra time for your journey.
