NightRider is a bus service that provides a safe, easy and inexpensive way to travel after 12.30am on weekends. The buses run every 30 minutes between the city (City Square, on Swanston Street between Collins and Flinders streets) and Melbourne's outer suburbs until 4.30am on Saturdays and 5.30am on Sundays, with additional services on some routes.

You can request to alight anywhere along the NightRider route, not just designated stops, provided it’s safe for the bus to stop. Simply let the driver know where you’d like to hop off so that you can get closer to your destination.

NightRider buses have phones on board so you can arrange for a taxi to meet you at your bus stop and take you home. Or for $1 you can use the phone to call a friend and ask them to come and pick you up. Please let the bus driver know when boarding the bus if you need to use the phone.

NightRider is more than just a city to suburbs service. Buses also run to the city on most routes after midnight until approximately 3.30am on Saturdays and 4.30am on Sundays, with additional services on some routes.
