Who we are

At Metro, We Move Melbourne

We operate 239 six/seven-carriage trains across 16 lines, 222 stations and 998 kilometres of track, seven days a week.

Metro has over 7,000 employees across diverse locations, from frontline train drivers and signallers to station staff and corporate office workers.  We strive to represent the community we serve and are proud to have one of the largest groups of female drivers in the world.

Together, we work as one team to deliver safe, reliable train services, and an exceptional passenger experience for all Victorians and visitors to Melbourne. We maintain and renew the railway network to ensure assets are safe and operate reliably.

We partner with the State Government to deliver city-shaping projects and build Melbourne’s railway of the future.
