Getting out and about in Melbourne is never too much of an issue, especially with so many quality public transport options on offer. However, you'll be glad to hear that travelling during unsociable hours just got a lot easier, thanks to the introduction of the Night Network scheme.
Several modes of public transport will be available throughout the night at weekends, making it easier for you to travel home to your property in Brunswick following an evening in the city.
Trials had been carried out throughout the city to see how many people would use the all-night public transport. Well, the figures are in and they show that nearly 10,000 Melburnians made the most of the scheme. Not only this, 91 per cent said they were likely to use the scheme during its 12-month trial.
Minister for public transport Jacinta Allan said: "Initial myki touch on data from the first weekend has shown three times as many people used Night Network compared to NightRider services but we want to see even more Victorians taking advantage of this great new service."
If you're interested in using the service to get back to your Brunswick property, then you'll be able to choose one of a number of different options.
The night train offers hourly services to and from the CBD on nearly all the metro lines, while there are trams running every 30 minutes on key routes throughout Melbourne. The night bus will be closely linked with the train services, while the night coach will travel from the city to Ballarat, Bendigo, Geelong and Traralgon.
