Reinventing trams

Victoria’s retired trams have transported millions of people and are an integral part of our rich heritage.

As Melbourne’s transport system has modernised and the needs of public transport users have evolved, older trams have been progressively retired from the network. Most of the retired trams have been stored away at the Newport workshops and are in varying states of repair.

We offered the retired trams to the public through an expression of interest process, which was open from 9am on Monday 28 May until 4pm on Friday 6 July 2018.

Thank you to everyone who applied.
