Alternative Metro Trains Transport
Sometimes, an incident may disrupt the trains on your line. Metro Trains will always attempt to get buses to replace the trains, but they can take a long time to be arranged and are often overcrowded when they finally arrive.
For most Melbourne stations, there is alternative transport available by using trams or regular route buses. This can often be quicker than waiting for a rail replacement.
I have made a list of the viable alternatives for each station, searchable by line or individual station. Passengers should be aware that bus services often have limited timetables, especially in the evening and weekends.
