In the lead up to the 2014 Victorian state election, Denis Napthine promised to make tram travel free in the Melbourne CBD. The Liberal Government lost the election, but the Labor Party matched the promise, so in January 2015 PTV had to spend a bucketload of money promoting something that cost them even more money.

The sign is inaccurate - this tram stop is in the Free Tram Zone, but any passenger boarding a tram here is headed OUT of the free zone!
