Melbourne's Bus Network Set to be Hugely Affected by 24-Hour Driver Strike Today

If your commute to work usually involves a bus, we're sorry. Melbourne bus drivers with transport outfit CDC Victoria will today — Tuesday, July 10 — strike for 24 hours as part of their negotiations with the Transport Workers Union, leaving many routes delayed or just not running at all.

The main areas to bear the brunt of the strike are the city's west, inner east and southeast. Services running in Ballarat and Geelong will also be impacted. The industrial action will run from the last bus on Monday, 9 July until the first bus Wednesday, 11 July, which will see crowding on alternative transport such as trains, trams and bus drivers.

Public Transport Victoria has assured that metropolitan and regional trains, trams and bus services not operated by CDC will be running as normal, with the company saying it is working to maximise the number of alternative services available for passengers.

These are the metropolitan bus routes affected. For more details, impacted regional routes and updates, check the Public Transport Victoria website.
