The choice to run E class on Route 30 seems like an odd one, where there are a grand total of 2 accessible stops (one at each termini) and plenty of other areas of the network with far more pressing c ...

Is there any update on when this timetable change can be expected to take effect? I am assuming that HCMTs cannot be introduced to service until the timetable has changed, as they can only operate one ...

Long replacement bus queues were reported at Caulfield this morning. Sounds as though there are ample numbers of buses on the road, but running at uneven intervals due to heavy traffic congestion.

I’m not sure I can see the point of designing a smaller E class where most routes are at or over capacity at most times of the day. Continuing to roll out the 3-module E2 onto busy routes such as th ...

Noticed this morning on an up Mernda service that there was no driver changeover taking place at Flinders Street platform 1. The driver simply stopped, reset the PIDS for the down service and departed ...

Huge bustitution coming up over the 31 August-1 September weekend. No Metro trains will run through the City Loop, Southern Cross, North Melbourne or South Yarra. Buses will operate from the city out  ...

Of course with no scope for duplication between the two rebuilt stations... hopeless!

If demand continues to grow particularly after service increases with the Ballarat line upgade, we may see the N-sets stick around for a while longer to cover peak hour runs. Priority would surely be  ...

From the perspective of a train passenger from a non-Skyrail station there is not a huge difference from the day to day use. The key benefit from the months of bustitutions would be that there are les ...

I did wonder how they managed that!

Whilst it is unpopular with commuters, charging a daily fee for commuter parking could prove a useful tactic to differentiate between commuters that have a legitimate need to drive (no alternative) an ...

Not a disruption, but an unusual sighting. The 7.31am up Mooroolbark was a Comeng this morning. Havent seen that one on the Burnley Group in about 6 years!

Whilst incidents like this are out of control of the operator, there are very few options to mitigate such major disruptions. As it happened the incident occurred at Hampton, being the second-to-last  ...

Major meltdown this morning with all Pakenham, Cranbourne, Frankston and Gippsland trains suspended between Caulfield and South Yarra from first service until approx 8:30am due to a power failure. Bus ...

No trains running this week on the inner sections of the Pakenham, Cranbourne, Frankston and Sandringham lines. Simultaneously Metro decided to run a reduced summer timetable at the same time on the B ...

Another huge occupation has been announced for the first two weeks of January for Metro Tunnel/HCMT works which will see no trains at all running through South Yarra. Buses to replace trains between F ...

Hi all, I noticed that X'Trapolis trains are now being used on the Flemington Racecourse Line today for the Melbourne Cup. Is this the first time that they have been cleared to do so?

Great news to remove the Pakenham level crossings and replace the current Pakenham station that is one of the shabbiest looking on the network.

However, a little bit of forward planning would have ...

I somewhat disagree. The Dandenong line is running at a reduced frequency all week due to Cranbourne line trains not running. It would be much easier to cancel a few Frankston trains (e.g. the express ...
