List of Melbourne railway stations


List of Melbourne railway stations

This is a list of the 200 currently operating suburban railway stations (216 including greater metropolitan stations) in Melbourne, Australia. The stations make up 16 radial railway lines (and 3 greater metropolitan lines), as well as the central City Loop.

There are also a further 19 stations on 3 heritage, volunteer-operated, tourist railways. These are not a part of the suburban network.

Stations are broken up into 2 Metcard ticketing zones (some stations are in the overlap between the two zones, where tickets for either zone may be used), as well as the City Saver area, which is within Zone 1 and covers the central business district. On March 4, 2007 zone 3 was abolished by being incorporated into zone 2. [cite press release
