Proposed changes to the St Kilda bus route

We are proposing changes to the bus routes in St Kilda and we’d like your feedback

The current bus routes 44 Halfway Bush/St Kilda and 55 Brockville/ St Kilda follow the same route and only travel one direction in a loop from Bay View Road via East Avenue, Hargest Crescent and Moreau Street to the terminus in Victoria Road before heading along Prince Albert Road back towards the City.

This route uses a number of residential streets and means some passengers have to wait on the bus at the terminus before they can travel to their destination.

We are proposing to simplify the routes, as well as remove the need both the 44 and 55 to make the same loop at the end of the journey in St Kilda.

Please note: There is an error on the map on the flyer that was posted. The proposal is that 44 travels up Plunket not Moreau St.

  • We are proposing to simplify the routes, as well as remove the need both the 44 and 55 to make the same loop at the end of the journey in St Kilda.

    Instead of travelling down Bay View Rd, the 55 will stay on Prince Albert Rd and on to Victoria Rd to the terminus (indicated on the map by the T in the circle), returning the same way. Similarly, the 44 will now travel via Richardson St and Plunket St to the Victoria Rd terminus and return using the same route.

    The changes will mean two buses in each direction every hour instead of four buses driving in a loop in the same direction. We will add a few more bus stops, and your nearest stop may move, but you will be able to catch or get off the bus in both directions along its route, as opposed to having to board the outgoing bus and wait at the terminus before travelling into the city.
