Some restrictions have eased across Victoria in line with Victoria’s roadmap to reopening.
Metropolitan Melbourne remains in Stage 4 restrictions with the first step of the roadmap including the easing of the curfew in metropolitan Melbourne from 9pm 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.
Public Transport Services
Melbourne's train, tram and bus services will continue to run at a reduced level from 8pm to the last service until Monday 28 September. 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.
Full services will resume between 8pm and 9pm from Monday 28 September.
All Night Network services, which run after midnight on Friday and Saturday nights, will not operate during Stage 4 restrictions.
