The RMH City Campus is well served by public transport and taxis. There are a number of transport options for you when coming to the hospital.

Metro Tunnel project

Construction of the Metro Tunnel may cause some delays for you coming to or leaving the hospital. From 19 February 2018, Grattan Street will be closed to traffic between Royal Parade and Leicester Street. From Sunday 18 February, bus routes 401, 402, 403, 505 and 546 have been altered.

Please visit the Metro Tunnel website before you travel to get up to date information on road closures.

To plan your travel on public transport, visit the Public Transport Victoria website.
