new-colour-coded-trainIn a bid to make it quicker and easier for passengers to find their way on Victoria’s rail network, the Victoria government will introduce a new colour-coded train map next year in 2017.


The new map was unveiled on Dec 29. It provides a different colour for each metropolitan train line and highlights interchanges, making it easier to tell which line you are on and where you need to change.


Colours have been carefully chosen to be distinguishable by people with the two most common types of colour vision impairment, and are the same colours as Public Transport Victoria’s (PTV) live travel updates.


By showing at a glance which lines are which when they leave the loop, passengers will be able to see when they can stay on a train to connect to a new line.


The map also integrates the metropolitan and regional train networks for the first time, reflecting the increasing integration of Metro and V/Line services and removing the need for passengers to swap between maps if travelling between Melbourne and regional Victoria.


The new map also includes a grid linked to an alphabetical index at the side, to help users locate unfamiliar stations. It will be progressively rolled out on all metropolitan trains and stations from 1 January 2017.
