Bus routes

This is a list of the numerous bus routes in Melbourne, Australia. They are organized by route number and by bus company.

Unlike Melbourne's train and tram networks, which are operated by one company each, Melbourne's bus network is operated by many, often local, companies.

All but three of these companies are fully funded subcontractors to the State Government (the exceptions being Skybus, National and Melbourne Bus Link, which derive varying proportions of their income from the fare revenue collected on board).

The subcontracted companies operate on a fee for service basis, where the State Government pays the full cost, and all revenue collected is returned to the Government. While there is no good reason for the bus network to not be integrated with the rest of the Public Transport system under this arrangement, which might allow it to form a useful role in the movement of people around Melbourne, the complete absence of political inertia has left Melbourne's bus network a total shambles that serves very few peoples actual travel needs and as a result, carries very few people.

The average Melbourne bus route operates every 50 minutes, stops at 6.40pm weekdays, might operate Saturday mornings, probably does not run Saturday afternoon, almost certainly does not run Sundays, and are often timetabled to leave just before potentially connecting services arrive. When the services operate, it is odd to see more than three people on board, save for a few routes that have superior service levels or service a large captive market.

Many services run with only the driver aboard. For operators on the above financial arrangement, this is the ideal situation, as they collect the full payment from the Government but cleaning and fuel costs are much lower when no passengers are carried.

For detailed travel information, do not rely solely on this page; please refer to the Metlink (http://www.metlinkmelbourne.com.au/) website, or the appropriate bus company website.
