Tram passengers

If you can, beat the crowds. St Kilda Road trams carry more passengers between 8am and 9am and 5pm and 6pm than any other time in the day.


Avoid the rush on the roads. On weekdays you can save time by not driving on St Kilda Road between 8am and 9:30am and 5pm and 6:30pm.

Consider your type of transport


Ride past the congestion on St Kilda Road. Bicycle lanes are being maintained in each direction on St Kilda Road throughout works.

Try a different route


If you can, avoid driving on St Kilda Road and use Kings Way, Canterbury Road or Beaconsfield Parade. Use the real-time navigation to find your best route and look out for on-road advice.
