Changes to timetables for V/Line coaches and bus services

From Sunday 31 January 2021, all V/Line coach services that connect with trains will run to new timetables.

Timetables will also change for some bus services and for a number of night bus services in regional and metropolitan areas. This is the first of three changes that will take place between January and April 2021 to coordinate services with 450 new train services and the new timetable for Victoria’s train network.

You can now access the new coach and bus timetables for the re-coordinated services on our Timetables page, order a printed copy of your timetable by calling 1800 800 007 or use the Journey planner to plan ahead.

More bus timetables in regional and metropolitan areas will change on 28 February and 11 April to fully align all bus services with the new rail timetable. These bus timetables will be available ahead of the change.

This means changes to train timetables could affect your connecting bus journey from Sunday 31 January. Please plan ahead before you travel using our Journey planner.

You can learn more about the stages or bus changes at:

Stage 2 - changes to metropolitan and regional bus services (28 February 2021)

Stage 3 – changes to metropolitan bus services (11 April 2021)
