Holiday revellers get free public transport



December 10, 2007 12:00am   Article from: Herald Sun


CHRISTMAS and New Year's Eve revellers are to get a free ride. The Government is providing free travel on metropolitan buses, trains and trams on December 25 and from 6pm on December 31.

It is part of a government push to cut the road toll by encouraging revellers to leave their cars at home.

Trains, trams and buses will run all night on New Year's Eve to get partygoers safely and quickly in and out of the city.

Public Transport Minister Lynne Kosky said it was the third consecutive year the Government had made the free transport available at Christmas and New Year.

"Too often these celebrations are marred by tragedy on our roads," Ms Kosky said.

TRAINS, trams and buses travelling around metropolitan Melbourne will be free all day and night on December 25 and from 6pm on December 31 until the first scheduled trip the next morning, January 1.

V/LINE passengers will travel free on Christmas Day and on services arriving in Melbourne after 6pm on New Year's Eve. They will also have a free ride on January 1's first service.

CONNEX will run its trains to a Sunday timetable on Christmas Day, as will Yarra Trams.

THE City Circle trams will not run on Christmas Day.

BUSES will run to a special timetable on Christmas Day.

CONNEX will run trains all night on New Year's Eve.

YARRA Trams will run a Saturday timetable on New Year's Eve, plus all-night services.

NIGHTRIDER bus services will run half-hourly from 12.30am, leaving Collins St between Swanston and Russell streets on New Year's Eve.

BUSES will operate on all nine routes until 4.30am; there'll be an extra 5.30am service on the Eltham route and 5.30am, 6.30am and 7.30am services on the Dandenong route.

Ms Kosky said Flinders Street and Southern Cross stations would be open all night on New Year's Eve.

Parents with prams and people with disabilities will be given priority access to the concourse and the lifts.

"Free travel arrangements mean New Year's Eve revellers will not have to cut their celebrations short to catch the last tram or train, as metropolitan public transport will run all night," Ms Kosky said.

"I urge people to take advantage of this great opportunity to leave the car at home.

"We also suggest people heading into the CBD on New Year's Eve plan their journey ahead of time. A little preparation can go a long way towards avoiding the crowds and getting home quickly and safely."

Ms Kosky said the free travel had been arranged through a partnership between the Government and the public transport operators, Connex, Yarra Trams and V/Line.

Timetable information is available at www.metlinkmelbourne.com.au or by telephoning Metlink on 131 638.
