    Public Transportation
    Getting to RMIT Campus by Public Transport Train: Most RMIT City campus buildings are located close to Melbourne Central train station which is serviced by all Connex Melbourne’s Train City Loop services. For services that run directly to Flinders Street, visitors to the RMIT City campus can catch a connecting City Loop train service from Flinders Street Station or catch any of the Yarra Tram Swanston Street services (see below).

    RMIT’s Buildings 108 and 112 in Bourke Street, Building 113 (Capitol Theatre) in Swanston Street and Building 157 in Collins Street are a short walk or tram ride along Swanston Street from either Melbourne Central or Flinders Street stations.

    Tram: Most north-south Melbourne city tram services run along Swanston Street (including routes 1,3,5,6,8,16,64,67 and 72). For those services that run along Elizabeth Street (routes 19, 57, 59) get off at Melbourne Central and walk one block to Swanston Street.

    Commuters traveling east-west on services along Flinders Street (routes 48, 70 and 75), Collins Street (routes 109 and 112) or Bourke Street (routes 86 and 96) can catch a connecting Swanston Street service.
