Melbourne tram route 82 is operated by Yarra Trams on the Melbourne tram network. It operates from Footscray railway station to Moonee Ponds Junction. It is one of only two tram routes which does not travel through the Melbourne CBD, the other being route 78. Part of its route is the last surviving segment of the Footscray tram network.

The 9.2 kilometre route is operated by Z3 class trams from Essendon tram depot.[1][2] Because of a short headshunt at Moonee Ponds Junction, only Z3 class trams can operate the service.

The route passes Highpoint Shopping Centre in Maribyrnong. A short section (less than 700 metres) of the route is a light rail reserve track parallel to Wests Road, Maribyrnong.

The route overlaps route 57 between the intersection of Maribyrnong Road and Union Road, Ascot Vale, and Raleigh Road and Wests Road, Maribyrnong.
