Did you know St Kilda has a Community Bus??

The FREE Community Bus services all Port Phillip neighbourhoods, connecting Port Melbourne with St Kilda. Elwood, St Kilda West, St Kilda East, Ripponlea, South Melbourne, Middle Park, Albert Park, Garden City and Port Melbourne areas. These neighbourhoods are covered along 2 routes, by two buses continually looping throughout the day.

Tracking your tram:

There is a free handy app for your Smartphone called the Tram Tracker – which will give you real-time tram information and tell you how far away each tram is for the stop you are near. It will also display icons if a low floor tram is approaching, if the tram is air conditioned and if there have been any disruptions. You can find this app here:  Tram Tracker App
