Melbourne tram route 16 is operated by Yarra Trams on the Melbourne tram network. It operates from Melbourne University to Kew. The 20.2 kilometre route is operated by Z and D class trams from Malvern depot.[1][2]

History[edit]

Route 16 commenced on 31 March 1995 when route 15 Moreland to St Kilda Beach was split into route 16 from Melbourne University to St Kilda Beach and route 22 from Moreland to the city.[3] On 17 October 2004 route 16 was combined with route 69 St Kilda Beach to Kew.[4][5][6][7]

In March 2007, an Avenio tram commenced a three month evaluation on route 16.[8][9]
