The Andrews Labor Government is introducing more late-night coach services between Melbourne and major regional centres on Friday and Saturday nights to make it quicker and easier for more people to get home safe.
Geelong, Ballarat, Bendigo, Seymour and Traralgon lines will all benefit from the extra Night Coach services, including new 1:00am services from Melbourne to both Ballarat and Bendigo.
People travelling to Melbourne will welcome the introduction of new late evening coaches from Bendigo, Seymour and Traralgon, arriving in Melbourne at 12.40am, and stopping in selected towns along the way.
Passengers will also benefit from more central stopping locations in Bacchus Marsh, Kyneton, Gisborne and Ballan and new stops at Tarneit and Wyndham Vale stations and in the towns of Newborough and Morwell East.
The new services being introduced from 24 November add to the 2:00am Night Coach services introduced as part of the Labor Government’s Night Network initiative which began in January 2016.
Night Network gives Victorians access to all-night public transport on Melbourne’s train, tram and bus services on Friday and Saturday nights, and 2:00am Night Coaches to major regional destinations.
Passenger information and timetables on the new services will be available from late October on board existing Night Coach services, at staffed V/Line stations and at ptv.vic.gov.au.
Quotes attributable to Minister for Public Transport Jacinta Allan
“We’re introducing more late night regional services, more stops and shorter wait times between the last train and the first Night Coach.”
“Passengers have told us they wanted extra Night Coach services – we’re giving them more options to get to and from Melbourne late at night and on weekends.”
