After a period of strong growth, patronage on Melbourne's public transport network is easing.
The number of trips taken on metropolitan trams, trains and buses grew by seven per cent in the 12 months to the end of September.
That compares with an increase of 13 per cent over the year to the end of March.
All up, there were almost 500 million trips on Melbourne's public transport system over the past year.
The State Public Transport Minister, Lynne Kosky, says the Government is confident annual growth in patronage is returning to more manageable levels.
She says planned infrastructure changes will provide the extra services needed over the next decade.
"It had to slow at some point," she said.
"What is terrific, is that we are making the investment as those numbers continue to increase at manageable levels."
Ms Kosky says the Government's $38-billion transport plan is on track to provide the services needed over the next decade.
