Using our services
All Victorians are being asked to play their part to keep one another safe, including making responsible choices about using our public transport network.
Everyone must recognise their responsibility to other people on public transport. When traveling you must use a fitted face mask covering your nose and mouth, unless you have a lawful reason for not doing so, and ensure you wear it for your entire journey.
We encourage everyone to practise good hygiene when on public transport:
- Wash your hands before and after you travel
- If you are unwell, stay home and get tested
- Keep your distance where you can
- Respect the clearance zone around our drivers
- Spread out along the platform and keep doorways clear
