Take PT to the Grand Prix
Around 1,500 additional tram services will help more than 400,000 motor sport fans flock to Albert Park for the 2022 Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix from 7-10 April.
Public transport is the quickest and easiest way to get trackside as parking is limited with road closures around the track.
Fans can use their Grand Prix ticket to travel free to Albert Park from the city and back on the shuttle tram over the four days.
Grand Prix express trams will be operating every two minutes during busy times from Southern Cross Station (running along Clarendon Street) and Flinders Street Station (along St Kilda Road) over the sold-out weekend, with trams running from 5.30am until 8.30pm each night.
Passengers on routes 3a, 5, 6, 16, 64, 67 and 72 can connect with Grand Prix tram shuttles along St Kilda Road to head straight to the track.
Buses will replace route 96 trams along Spencer Street over the four days of action and along the entire route 96 which runs from East Brunswick to Luna Park over the weekend. Express Grand Prix buses are also running from the Casino to Gates 1, 2 and 3.
Lakeside Drive and roads within Albert Park are closed to the public until Monday, 11 April.
Passengers should be aware of the following planned works over the Grand Prix weekend:
- On the Pakenham line, buses will replace trains between Berwick and Pakenham from 9.30pm Friday, 8 April to last service Monday, 11 April.
- On the Hurstbridge line, buses will replace trains between Clifton Hill and Macleod from 8.55pm to last train on Sunday, 10 April.
Ticket-holders are reminded they must be double vaccinated to enter the Albert Park track. Masks must be worn on public transport and in rideshare vehicles. Authorised officers are conducting regular patrols across the public transport network.
