Keeping Melbourne moving safely and reliably.

Metro Trains Melbourne

The Metro Trains Melbourne (MTM) rail network is one of Australia’s busiest commuter networks. It spans 16 lines and 222 stations covering 989 kilometres of track with 226 six carriage trains, with an average pre-COVID weekday patronage of approximately 800,000 trips. 

Pre-pandemic, MTM carried over 450,000 customers each day across 222 stations. Our team understands the importance of getting Melburnians to work, home, study and events safely and on time.

Along with our partners, our team is responsible for operating, maintaining and developing all assets associated with the network including train operations, rolling stock, train control, infrastructure, depots, stations, structures and facilities. 

Our project scope includes operations and maintenance of the network, such as signalling; rail construction; relationship management; management of railway assets; management of above rail operations (including train control); management of property assets, systems, documentation and standards; and transition and interface management with key stakeholders including Public Transport Victoria and the Department of Transport, Planning and Local Infrastructure.

As our city grows, our capacity to provide safe, frequent and reliable services to make it easier for people to move around Melbourne will be even more important.
We’re partnering with the government to deliver an unprecedented pipeline of major network improvements such as level crossing removals, the Metro Tunnel, High Capacity Metro Trains, Melbourne Airport Rail, and new stations and track.
We’re supporting the removal of 85 level crossings across the Metro network to enable more frequent services for our passengers, and to remove the dangers associated with trains sharing a crossing with vehicles and other users.
