Coronavirus and construction

Work is continuing safely on Victoria’s Big Build, our biggest transport upgrade ever. The health and safety of our workforce and community remains our top priority.

COVIDSafe Plans are in place on all project sites. Workers must comply with those plans, including physical distancing and face mask requirements (unless they meet the exemption criteria).

Public transport timetables

Public transport services are running to the normal timetable, unless affected by disruptions. There are some changes to regional services at the South Australian border.

Staying safe on public transport

When travelling on public transport, you must wear a face mask unless you have an exemption.

Wear the mask for your entire journey, and remember to put on your mask when you enter a train station and before getting on buses and trams. You must also wear a mask on platforms and tram and bus stops when you can't keep a safe distance from others.

Wearing a face mask helps keep you and others safe and will help us reach COVID Normal.

We encourage everyone to practise good hygiene when on public transport:

  • Wash your hands before and after you travel.
  • If you are unwell, stay home and get tested.
  • Keep your distance where you can.
  • Respect the clearance zone around our drivers.
  • Spread out along the platform and keep doorways clear.

We have additional daily cleaning services in place across the network, as well as contactless hand sanitisers at many stops and stations to help keep you safe while travelling.
