Visitors to Marvel Stadium, St Vincent’s Hospital and the State Library can now stay out later, with the rollout of a new late-night tram timetable for Route 30.
The new timetable, which came into force on January 1, sees tram services from St Vincent’s Plaza to Central Pier via LaTrobe St run until 1am on Friday and Saturdays, and until midnight from Sundays to Thursdays.
Minister for Public Transport Melissa Horne said the government was making it easier to leave the car behind and take public transport.
“We’re giving people extra services when and where they need them,” she said.
Previously there were no weekend services on this route, with weekday services finishing at 6pm.
