Service Changes

  • Route 72 trams run a shortened service between Melbourne University and Stop 51 Gardiner Station.
  • Buses replace Route 72 trams between Stop 51 Gardiner Station and Camberwell, diverting around the work zone.

The following tram stops will be closed but will be serviced by replacement buses, departing from temporary bus stops located within walking distance from the tram stops: 

  • Stop 59 Seymour Grove 
  • Stop 61 Riversdale Road
  • Stop 63 Prospect Hill Road
  • Stop 66 Rathmines Road

The following tram stops will be closed and will not be serviced by replacement buses. Follow signage at stop to get to the nearest alternative service.

Tram replacement buses are low-floor depending on availability. If you need assistance, speak to our customer service team or alert your driver.

Alternative travel

If possible, avoid the area for the duration of the works or consider the following alternative travel options:

  • Bus 624 along Tooronga Road and Auburn Road between Carrol Crescent and Cotham Road.
  • Route 16 and 70/75 trams between Glenferrie Road/ Malvern Road and Riversdale Road

During works, trams and replacement buses run to the normal frequency, however they may be delayed due to traffic congestion. 

We encourage you to plan ahead and allow extra time for your journey.
