If you're not sure which train, tram or bus to catch, or you find your journey is too complex to plan using timetables alone, Public Transport Victoria provide a journey planner. You will be able to specify your origin and destination and have the entire journey planned for you.
You can phone Public Transport Victoria on 1800 800 007 for timetable information, journey planning and reservations. They are available to take your call 7 days a week from 6am to midnight.
Mobile phone apps
The official Public Transport Victoria (PTV) app can be installed on mobile phones. Choose the appropriate version for your phone.
The PTV app can be used to plan a journey, including timetable information and current service disruption information.
Using the GPS on your phone to pinpoint your location, the app can identify nearby services and where they stop. Real time information, with a countdown timer showing when the next services will arrive at your location, is available for metropolitan trains, trams and some buses. In the absence of real time arrival information for a particular service, the app will revert to showing arrival time based on the timetable.
