Regional Rail Revival

Regional Rail Revival

Coaches replace trains between Warrnambool and Geelong from Saturday 10 April to last train Sunday 18 April. Buses replace trains between Waurn Pond and Marshall stations, except for some peak services which will be replaced by buses between Waurn Ponds and Geelong. To plan your journey visit the PTV website or call 1800 800 007.

The Australian and Victorian governments have invested more than $4 billion in the Regional Rail Revival program, which is upgrading every regional passenger rail line in Victoria and creating jobs and supplier opportunities.
