New trains and trams
From 13 July 2020, we're running new train and tram services to help people who have to travel for work or study, shop for essential supplies, to perform care duties, or to stay safe.
We're adding 95 extra train services each day before and after peak times.
By adding extra train services outside the peak, passengers who have to travel will be able to stagger their travel times and increase the space on carriages.
In the morning, extra services will be added between 6am and 7am or 9am and 10am. In the afternoon, extra services will be added between 3pm and 4pm or after 6pm.
On the tram network, two new shuttle routes will run along Collins Street, making more room for passengers who have to travel.
Route 11A will run from the new depot at Preston to Victoria Harbour via St Georges Road, Brunswick Street and Collins Street. It will run between 7am and 10.30am then between 3pm and 7.30pm on weekdays.
Route 11B will provide more trams more often on Collins Street. It will run between 6am and midnight on Monday to Thursday, 6am and 1am on Friday to Saturday and 7.30am and midnight on Sunday.
Please note: The Route 11 shuttles (11a and 11b) will no longer run from 10pm Monday 10 August onwards. Route 11 trams will continue to run as per the timetable.
