Just a quick little update!
Starting May 1st, Route 55 (West Coburg to Domain Interchange) and Route 8 (Moreland to Toorak) will merge to become Route 58 (West Coburg to Toorak). Route 6 (Glen Iris to Melbourne University) will be extended to Moreland.
Route 58 follows most of the old Route 55 route, but continues on from Domain Interchange into Toorak. It will be served by low-floor trams. However, not all stops along Route 58 are disabled friendly. Plan your journey at ptv.vic.gov.au before leaving.
If you currently take Route 8 and you wish to access Swanston St., change at Domain Interchange for any tram to Melbourne University, Moreland or East Coburg.
All tram timetables will also be changed to reflect traffic and seasonal conditions. As a result, some trams may be made more/less frequent. Check the new timetables when they come out for more details, or download the TramTracker app from the App Store or Google Play.
