Public transport

  • Know the timetables to avoid long waits.
  • Wait and sit with other people rather than on your own.
  • Move to another seat or carriage if you don’t feel safe.
  • Utilise the NightRider bus service from the city on weekends.
  • Where possible, pre-order a taxi as the driver’s details will be recorded, and sit in the back of the taxi. Utilise the Safe City Taxi Ranks.
  • The Public Transport Victoria website has extensive safety information about travelling on trams, buses and trains. Download their free app.
