The guide dog tram is returning to Melbourne this month

Dogs on a tram

However you feel about your daily commute on Melbourne’s public transport system, the good people at Guide Dogs Victoria are keen to make it a little better. Next week on Thursday, January 31 Guide Dogs Victoria will be hopping on board a Melbourne tram with some of their four-legged employees for a pat and a chat about their work. 

The special journey will be happening on the route 19 tram around 2pm at the Flinders Street/Elizabeth Street stop. These hardworking puppers will be on board for a little while, making your lunch break much cuter than usual. 

Guide Dogs Victoria will be updating commuters on all social channels during the day to update everyone on the whereabouts of these pups. 

To stay in the know about the guide dog tram in the lead up, check out the Tramtracker app and the event Facebook page.

It's not the first time a guide dog tram has gone through the city – in May 2018 a tram filled with guide dog puppies travelled through the CBD to raise awareness of the organisation.
