Melbourne's afternoon journey is getting worse for many thousands of passengers crammed into trains trying to get home.
While the number of trains overcrowded in the morning peak has actually dropped, the afternoon peak remains a worry for passengers, Metro Trains and the government.
One in 10 passengers in the afternoon rush suffer on trains that are packed shoulder to shoulder.
Latest figures show about 10 per cent of people travel on trains packed with more than 900 passengers.
