St Kilda light rail renewal works

Monday 28 September to Sunday 4 October 2020

Date and time

First tram Monday 28 September to last tram Saturday 3 October

Reason for service changes

We’re renewing the power infrastructure along St Kilda light rail.

Service changes

Route 96 trams run a shortened service, with buses replacing trams between Stop 125 Clarendon Street Junctions and Stop 138 Luna Park. 

Tram replacement buses will travel along Ferrars Street, Canterbury Road and Fitzroy Street, stopping at temporary bus stops located near the existing tram stops.

Tram stop changes

The following tram stops will be closed and will not be serviced by replacement buses:

  • Stop 126 City Road (towards St Kilda Beach)
  • Stop 139 Acland Street

COVID-19 Changes


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 options

Consider Route 3a (weekend only), 12 or 16 trams between the city and St Kilda. 

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