New tram timetables in October 2022

From 16 October 2022, there will be new timetables for trams travelling along Bourke Street and Swanston Street.

Average tram journey times along Swanston and Bourke street corridors will reduce by more than one and a half minutes thanks to kerb and stop upgrades and signalling improvements.

Passengers on tram routes 1, 3, 5, 6, 16, 64, 67, 72, 86, and 96 will benefit from improved journey times and new infrastructure.

The City Circle Route 35 will have small changes to stop times as it shares the same corridor – some trips will shift by one minute, at a maximum.   

There will also be minor changes to tram Route 6 with some trips shortened at Malvern to reduce congestion at Glen Iris terminus.

Timetable changes to Route 6 will also deliver a more consistent frequency across the day.
