Keeping White Night Running All Night Long

19 February 2016

The Andrews Labor Government is supporting White Night Melbourne– one of Victoria’s most popular cultural events – with increased public transport services all night.

Minister for Public Transport Jacinta Allan announced an expanded Night Network with extra services to get people to and from White Night, making public transport the best way to travel to the event.

From 11:00pm to 3:30am trains will be running every 30 minutes on all metropolitan lines, and City Loop stations will be operating all night to keep the crowds of party-goers moving.

All tram routes will run all night, with the exception of Routes 35, 78 and 82. Trams will be running every 5-10 minutes from 5pm to 1am, every 15-20 minutes from 1am to 3am, and then every 20-30 minutes until the first service.

Revellers will be able to catch Night Bus services from 1:30am to 6:30am, with some stop changes due to road closures in the city.

Regional commuters from Ballarat, Bendigo, Geelong and Traralgon will also be able to take advantage of Night Coach services to get home later on White Night.

Night Coach services depart from the Southern Cross Coach terminal between 2am and 2.15am.

Passengers need a valid ticket, are required to touch on and off when travelling, and are encouraged to top up before heading to White Night to make travel easier.
