Green means free trams

Green means free trams Image

The State Government has revealed new green signage, which will signify free tram travel within the CBD and Docklands.

The new free zone comes into effect on New Year’s Day.  More than 70 tram stops will have bright green signage.

The Premier Denis Napthine unveiled the new signage on September 21 on an Elizabeth St tram stop.

“Vibrant signage will catch the eye, providing an instant reminder to passengers that they are in the zone and don’t need to touch on their myki.” Dr Napthine said.

The new free tram zone follows the traditional CBD grid and stretches from Flinders St to Victoria St, and from Spring St to Docklands in the west.

“People will be able to travel much of the city without a ticket and visit some of our best landmarks such as the Queen Victoria Market and Federation Square,” Dr Napthine said.

“Free city tram travel is a major benefit for visitors and enables them to discover all that Melbourne city has to offer by public transport, but at no cost.”.
