Melbourne Transport Q

Any Melbournites out there know if there's usually a shuttle bus from Docklands to Flinders St Station after concerts?

TIA

I think someone told me that public transport is free for ticket holders the days of the concerts, too. Or maybe it's just trains...

I'll be in a hotel near the Telstra Dome anyway.

Eek! Sorry Amy and others, I have misinformed you (accidentally).

I was told there are extra trains running in Melbourne on those days, not free ones. My bad!

Sorry again folks, I should have expected that the greedy PT operators down here wouldn't be giving it away if they could help it.

You won't get mugged in Melbourne...maybe Sydney but not Melbourne....

Docklands stadium is right next to Spencer Street Station (or Southern Cross Station as some wankers have since changed it to)...short walk to the station, jump on just about any of the trains that are headed Flinders St way, and you'll be at Flinders in no time...
