The Melvin City Bus Network is Liftland's biggest bus network. In 1973, when trams in Melvin City ceased, the current scheme was launched.

Current scheme Edit

Under the current scheme:

  • One to two digits: bus routes that provide almost all local service in downtown Melvin.
  • 100s: bus routes that were formerly tram routes. The last two digits are the destination number from the tram's period.
  • 200-209: bus routes that run on Melvin/Chermside Busway.
  • 300s, 400s: other suburban bus routes.
  • 500-579: Bus Upgrade Zone.
  • 580-609: bus routes which are requested to operate by the residents or estates community.
  • 700-739: bus routes which are requested to operate by a high school.
  • 740-997: bus routes which are requested to operate by a primary school.

Bus routes that were formerly tram routes Edit

Trams in Melvin City ceased on 4 July 1973. This brought the current scheme of bus routes into use. A destination number from the tram's period is prefixed by the number 1 to indicate a bus route, making it three digits. Tram routes with no numbers were not allocated directly as bus routes–and therefore assigned route number 100.

Cancelled bus routes are the ones with a strikethrough.
