Melbourne's Bus Network Is Set to Be Affected by Another 24-Hour Driver Strike

If your commute to work usually involves a bus, we're sorry. Melbourne bus drivers with transport outfits Transdev and CDC Victoria will go on strike on Thursday, August 16 — for 24 hours, as part of their latest negotiations for better working conditions.

The second strike in the last month, the move will leave many routes delayed or just not running at all — and, because two companies are involved, it's set to have a wider impact across the city. Services running in Ballarat and Geelong will also be impacted.

Public Transport Victoria has advised that metropolitan and regional trains, trams and bus services not operated by Transdev and CDC will be running as normal.

These are the metropolitan bus routes affected. For more details, a rundown of impacted regional routes and updates as they happen, check the Public Transport Victoria website.
