PUBLIC TRANSPORT - TRAINS



**IMPORTANT CHANGES FOR GEELONG-BASED PATRONS**

V/Line is advising Geelong fans that footy trains will originate and terminate from Southern Cross for the Round 13 game. 

V/Line will be providing additional train services before and after the game on Sunday 17 June.

Click here to view full details on train services to/from Melbourne on V/Line. 

Fans will be able to catch a metropolitan service from Southern Cross to the MCG – see below for details as recommended by V/Line:  

*This Saturday and Sunday there are bus replacements to/from Jolimont station – there will be no trains running via Jolimont station. Metro will have a temporary Bus stop in Wellington Parade (City side of Clarendon Street).

BEFORE THE GAME

Travelling from Southern Cross to Richmond Station:

V/Line customers can catch a Metro train from Platform 10 on the Glen Waverley and Lilydale/Belgrave lines, or a Metro train on the Pakenham line from Platform 12.

AFTER THE GAME

Travelling from Richmond Station to Southern Cross Station:

V/Line customers can catch a Metro train towards Flinders Street, via Southern Cross Station, from Platform 3 or Platform 5 at Richmond Station.

METRO

There are two train stations close to the MCG. Jolimont (otherwise known as MCG Station) is north of the ground and offers a five-minute stroll through Yarra Park to the ground. From any railway station in the central business district, take the Hurstbridge or Epping lines. 

The other station is Richmond on the south eastern side of the MCG. It's a slightly longer walk to the ground but you can walk past the Punt Road Oval to the Great Southern Stand side. 

To get to Richmond station from the city, take any train on the Lilydale, Belgrave, Alamein, Glen Waverley, Dandenong, Pakenham, Cranbourne, Frankston or Sandringham lines. Advice from Public Transport Victoria for MCG patrons.

 

TRAMS



Three tram routes provide access to the MCG. 

No. 75 (City-Vermont South) travels along Flinders St and connects with the eastern suburbs via Wellington Parade. 

No. 48 (Docklands/City-North Balwyn) travels along Collins Street and connects with the eastern suburbs via Wellington Parade. Both these routes stop just outside the MCG. 

No. 70 (Docklands/City-Wattle Park) travels along Flinders Street then detours via Melbourne Park and the tram stop is a short walk across the footbridge to the ground.

Trams to/from Southern Cross 

V/Line advises passengers to catch a Metro train to the game. However, customers who wish to board a tram can catch the Route 48 from Southern Cross/Collins St towards North Balwyn. 

Patrons are advised to listen for announcements or check the information screens on platforms. You can also find out real-time information on journey times via the PTV journey planners at www.ptv.gov.au/journey.  

 

CAR PARKING & ACCESS



Car parking is usually available at the MCG in Yarra Park on event days. This land is controlled by the Melbourne Cricket Club and managed on event days by Care Park. 

Parking currently costs $10 per vehicle. Please note that, in an effort to improve safety in the park, pedestrians are given priority in Yarra Park when exiting MCG events. This is expected to cause a delay to vehicles being able to exit the park.

View latest details about car park opening times.

Occasionally parts of Yarra Park are closed to save the grass after heavy rain. Street parking is very limited. 

Parking in high-rise parking buildings in the CBD is another option for MCG visitors. 

 

BUSES, TAXIS & OTHER TRANSPORT



The Bus route 246 is run by National Bus Company, which links La Trobe University with Elsternwick Station in a useful service for patrons from the northern and southern suburbs. The 246 stops in Punt Road, just a punt kick from the ground.

Ferry 

Get ready to cruise from Geelong direct to Melbourne in the most comfortable and fun way you could ever imagine, thanks to Port Phillip Ferries.

Not only is there awesome views, a licensed cafe, free Wi-Fi and a guaranteed seat, but we deliver you right to the free CBD tram network. Trams are free all the way to the MCG from Docklands!!!

Dust off your footy gear and practice singing your theme song, because this will definitely be the least stressful way to get there and back.

By the way, you don’t have to be going to the footy to enjoy the trip. You’re still welcome to simply head off and enjoy Melbourne for all it has to offer!
