Seymour Coach added to Night Network Services
Added: 16 September 2016
From 14 October, residents at destinations along the rail line between Melbourne and Seymour will benefit from a new Night Coach being introduced under the Government’s Night Network trial of all night public transport at weekends.
The new Seymour Night Coach will depart from Melbourne’s Southern Cross Coach Terminal at 2am on Saturday and Sunday mornings, dropping passengers off at stations along the line, as well as coach stops in Wallan and Kilmore.
Arriving at Seymour just before 4am, the Night Coach finishes its route 15 minutes later with a final drop off at Bridges Barracks, Puckapunyal. Only authorised personnel who possess a Defence Common Access Card will be permitted access to the Puckapunyal Military Area.
Seymour joins Bendigo, Ballarat, Geelong and Traralgon as regional destinations serviced by Night Network.
Night Network was launched by the Andrews Government in January this year as a one year trial of all night transport at weekends across trains trams and buses in Melbourne, and 2am Night Coaches to major regional destinations.
As a further boost to Melbourne’s night time economy and major events, in July this year the Victorian Government announced a six month continuation of Night Network services over the summer and autumn of 2017.
