Each V/Line service is equipped with facilities to make your journey comfortable.

Seating

Family


As with any mode of public transport, the demand for seats will vary from service to service and from day to day. With a "turn up and travel" service like V/Line, there will be trains on which every seat is occupied and you may need to stand. 

Just like other public transport services around the world, there may be times when you will not get a seat, despite our best efforts to provide the maximum capacity during peak periods.
 


Food and drink

Most trains to and from Albury, Bairnsdale, Swan Hill, Shepparton and Warrnambool have a Café Bar on board. Other services, as well as V/Line coaches, do not have this facility. 

Sometimes we are unable to open the Café Bar in cases of staff illness or because they are required as a conductor on another train.

The following Shepparton trains do not have Café Bar services:
  • 05:15 Shepparton to Southern Cross, Monday to Friday
  • 16:06 Shepparton to Southern Cross, Monday to Friday
  • 12:52 Southern Cross to Shepparton, Monday to Friday.
Your conductor will let you know when the Café Bar is open for you to buy snacks, hot beverages and soft drinks.

EFTPOS, Mastercard and Visa facilities are available.

On V/Line coaches

Cold packaged foods can be consumed on V/Line coach services. Hot food or drink cannot be brought on board V/Line coach services. All drink containers must have a secure, screw-top, fastening or spill-proof lid.

Alcohol

Alcohol is not served and customers are not permitted to drink it on board any V/Line services.

Quiet carriages


A quiet carriage is a dedicated zone on our trains for customers who want to travel in peace and quiet. 

After a successful trial in 2013, quiet carriages have been rolled out across the VLocity fleet.

Quiet Carriage Diagram
Customers are asked to turn down electronic devices, switch mobile phones to silent and speak quietly.

Please note that using headphones or earphones may not prevent other customers hearing very loud music, so it’s a good idea to check if people around you can also hear your music.
Help keep the peace
The quiet carriage is a customer-driven and customer-regulated initiative. V/Line staff do not enforce quiet carriage courtesy.

Travelling with children

Prams and strollers

Prams, pushers and strollers can be taken on V/Line train services if there is room on board. On busy services you may be required to fold up your pram and store it in the appropriate area.

Please ask the conductor if you need assistance with storing your pram.

Baby change facilities

Our VLocity trains have toilets that are equipped with baby change facilities, however, our older locomotive carriages and Sprinter trains do not have these facilities.

Baby change facilities are also available at Southern Cross Station.
