Major train delays for lines travelling to the city's north and south-east have left commuters stranded on Monday night.
An equipment fault near Toorak has led to delays of up to 30 minutes on the Cranbourne, Frankston and Pakenham lines.
"Metro staff are on site, working hard to fix the fault in the Richmond-Caulfield area," Metro Trains tweeted on Monday night.
"Major delays continue. Trains will depart altered platforms Richmond - Caulfield due to an equipment fault near Hawksburn. Check platform displays and listen for announcements as services may be altered at short notice."
Those wanting to travel north are also feeling the pain, with the entire Mernda line shutdown due to an overhead power fault near Preston that earlier left passengers stranded on a train.
The line is suspended from Clifton Hill to Epping.
Metro Trains are organising limited replacement bus services, but passengers are being advised to seek alternate routes home or avoid the line if they can.
"40 replacement buses are in operation, with an extended journey time of up to 60min," Metro Trains tweeted.
"Replacement buses are expected to operate until the end of service tonight."
