We’re in this together and we need your help
Metropolitan Melbourne has moved to Stage 4 restrictions. The Chief Health Adviser has provided advice to limit movement across Melbourne to help slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).
Measures to support this include a curfew in metropolitan Melbourne from 8pm to 5am. The only reasons to leave home during the curfew are for permitted work, or urgent medical care and caregiving. Permitted workers must have a permit to travel.
Outside of these reasons, you must stay at home.
Melbourne's train, tram and bus services have been reduced from 8pm to the last service. Services will run every 40-60 minutes with the first and last train, tram and bus services on every line and route still operating to ensure all permitted workers can get to and from work.
All Night Network services, which run after midnight on Friday and Saturday nights, will not operate during Stage 4 restrictions.
Visit the Department of Health and Human Services website for more information on the Stage 4 restrictions and the latest advice on coronavirus (COVID-19).
Services will continue to operate on a normal timetable each day between 5am and 8pm for essential travel.
In Melbourne there are only two reasons to travel into regional areas. They are for medical care and caregiving, and for work if you can't do it from home. If you leave home to shop or exercise, it must be within 5km of your home during the day.
We ask that our passengers only travel for a permitted purpose.
Except for a limited number of exemptions, it is now compulsory for all Victorians to wear a face covering when they leave home – please ensure you wear this for your entire journey and practise good hygiene. If you're unwell, stay home and get tested even if you have the mildest of symptoms.
The symptoms to watch out for are:
- Loss or changes in sense of smell or taste
- Chills or sweats
- Sore throat
- Shortness of breath
- Runny nose
In certain circumstances headache, muscle soreness, stuffy nose, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea may also be considered. Visit the symptoms and risks on the Department of Health and Human Services website to find out more about what to do if you are feeling unwell.
Passengers can take comfort that we have additional daily cleaning services in place across the network, as well as contactless hand sanitisers at stops and stations to help keep you safe while travelling.
Thanks for keeping our community safe when travelling.
