City of Hume
The City of Hume municipality is in Melbourne’s outer north. The current version of the local area map only includes those services that are considered “metropolitan”, with limited public transport services beyond Craigieburn and Sunbury not shown.
Public transport services passing through the following suburbs and townships are shown on the map: Attwood, Broadmeadows, Bulla, Campbellfield, Coolaroo, Craigieburn, Dallas, Gladstone Park, Greenvale, Jacana, Meadow Heights, Melbourne Airport, Mickleham, Roxburgh Park, Somerton, Sunbury, Tullamarine, Westmeadows along with parts of Diggers Rest.
Outskirts townships not served by public transport in the City of Hume include Kalkallo, Konagaderra, Oaklands Junction, Wildwood and Yuroke, along with eastern parts of Clarkefield. These towns are largely obscured on the map by insets of Broadmeadows and Sunbury.
Following the launch of the Metlink brand across Melbourne in 2004, pocket-sized guides with multi-modal network maps were distributed to households around Melbourne. 31 different editions are available, one for each municipality. The maps often include suburbs adjoining municipal boundaries.
Each map is drawn by the experts at Melway. The original versions had all bus services colour-coded orange, which made it difficult to read for areas with numerous overlapping bus services, such as Manningham or Greater Dandenong. These were reissued again in June 2005, correcting various errors in the original versions.
In September 2007 the first maps were sighted in a new full-colour format, making the bus network much easier to decipher. These maps would gradually appear for most municipalities over the next couple of years, with the map for Mornington Peninsula Shire finally coming online in April 2011. PTV have continued to issue these maps since the April 2012 rebrand.
These maps effectively superseded the former fold-out Melbourne-wide Public Transport Map, however printed editions have not been issued since 2011, other than in brochures for major network changes. A new-style printed format has since been seen for the “Melbourne By Bus” marketing campaign.
Below we have uploaded various editions issued for City of Hume, however we stress this is not a complete set by any means. Where possible, we have noted the reason(s) for the updated map.
