Metro’s trains keep Melbourne moving as restrictions ease

10 Dec 2020, James Ireland

As Melbourne opens up again, and more passengers return to the network, Metro is more focused than ever on delivering safe and reliable services for passengers.

In November, Metro ran more than 61,000 services, of which 94.7 per cent of trains on time – well above the 92 per cent target – while 98.7 per cent of scheduled services were delivered.

To keep passengers safe, Metro and its contractors are continuing to regularly clean high-touch surfaces across the network, as well as nightly deep-cleaning of trains.

Across metropolitan train stations, 149 hand sanitising stations have been installed including 17 dispensers at Southern Cross Station alone.

On public transport, passengers must continue to wear a fitted face mask covering their nose and mouth for their entire journey.

To ensure Melburnians can get where they need to go public transport services are running to the normal timetable including the Night Network.
