Planned Industrial Action - Friday 30 August

Friday 30 August 2019

Date and time

Friday 30 August, between 10am and 2pm

Reason for service changes

Due to planned industrial action, no trams will run. Services are expected to be significantly disrupted until approximately 3pm.

Passengers are encouraged to defer all non-essential travel and consider alternative modes of transport during this period. Metropolitan trains, buses and V/Line trains will run as normal, however these services may be busier than usual.

Additional disruptions will occur to City Circle trams on Monday 28 August and Wednesday 26 to Friday 30 August. 

Service changes

Limited replacement buses will run from some tram stops to transfer passengers to alternative modes of transport approximately every 30 minutes. This will be a significantly reduced service and passengers should expect multiple changes during their journey, delays and crowding.

Tram replacement bus stops

Tram replacement buses are low-floor depending on availability, and will service all existing kerbside and safety zone tram stops along the bus route. At tram platform stops, buses will stop at the footpath nearby where possible. Please hail the bus when it is approaching. While on board, ensure you press the button for your stop with enough time to notify the driver.
