Get to Melbourne’s Supanova Faster than a Speeding Bullet!

Thanks to Public Transport Victoria, it’s now easier than ever to get to Melbourne’s Supanova Expo, as Metlink has added extra services from the City to the Showgrounds so you can make your way to the expo with the minimum amount of fuss and the maximum amount of friends.

Here are the details:

TRAMS – Route 57a – Saturday 14 & Sunday 15 April 2012

There are three extra special Supa-trams being added to the usual timetable with the first one leaving at 9:00am from the corner of Elizabeth and Flinders streets. The trams stop at Melbourne Showgrounds / Coles Supermarket on Epsom Road near the entry to Supanova. The last of the three extra special Supa-trams returns from Epsom road at 7:00pm and it would be remiss of us not to remind you to make sure you have a valid Metcard / Myki for your journey.

TRAINS – Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 April 2012
