Disruptions to public transport

Vic Department of Transport

There may be changes to some public transport services due to staff availability.

With a large number of staff isolating, some services may be disrupted over the next few weeks as timetable requirements are balanced with staff availability.

Passengers are advised to allow extra travel time.

The Department of Transport continues to work closely with public transport operators to minimise the impact on passengers and to ensure the health and welfare of everyone on the network.

Public transport continues to operate under a COVIDSafe plan. High-touch surfaces like next-stop buttons, door handles, myki touch points, handrails and grab straps are cleaned regularly, and trains, trams, buses, stations and stops are cleaned each night.

More than 500 hand sanitisers have also been installed across the network.

All passengers eight years and over must wear a fitted face mask when travelling on public transport.

The Department of Transport thanks passengers for their patience and understanding during this challenging time.

Public transport information and network status is available at ptv.vic.gov.au or the PTV mobile app.
