Start planning your journey and organising your transport for the biggest design event of the year.
August 16th, 2023
Saturday Indesign will be taking over Melbourne, transforming one of the country’s biggest cities into a certified design utopia. Come Saturday September 2nd, we’ll have over 26 showroom locations open, hosting 36 exhibitors just for Saturday Indesign attendees, with an event footprint stretching through our three precincts; Richmond, CBD and Collingwood/Fitzroy.
With so much to see and do, pre-planning and considering your transportation options is a must. There’s heaps of options to choose from, so check out our What’s On page for our full event day schedule and then decide which transportation mode will get you where you need to go at the speed, efficiency and price that suits you! Whether you’re pedalling on a Lime Bike, making the most of Melbourne’s tram network, or using one of our iconic hop-on/hop-off buses, courtesy of our transport partner Neolith, the journey is part of the Saturday Indesign fun!
Saturday Indesign bus fleet
Best for: the full Saturday Indesign experience
Our Saturday Indesign buses are in full force for SID 2023 thanks to our transport partner Neolith. These hop-on/hop-off buses will loop precincts and shuttle between showrooms to get you across the full event footprint.
Neolith have ensured this is a 100% free service that runs from 9:00am-5:00pm so you can jump on and off at your leisure. The bus routes will be available in all event handbooks with live bus trackers online so you always know where your closest bus is.
If you’re along for the journey and don’t have a time-sensitive plan for the day, the buses are the ideal way for you to get around to see it all at a leisurely pace – for you to savour the day.
Best for: soaking in the Saturday Indesign vibe
If you’re a SID veteran you know that event day transforms a city. Walking from showroom-to-showroom means you can control your own schedule and be part of the action that spills out of showrooms and onto the streets. You’ll be seeing event bags and lanyards a plenty and keeping the vibe going as you criss-cross from showroom to showroom. Keep an eye on the event map to see which locations are close by – perfectly paired with our Neolith Saturday Indesign Fleet for a great way to get around to all exhibitor locations.
Best for: timed activations
If you’ve got to quickly nip from Living Edge to Brickworks with no time to spare, we’d recommend opting for cars to get you where you need to go. Whether you’re Ubering, carpooling or driving yourself around, this is your sure-fire way to guarantee you’re making the timed activations you’re planning your day around.
Best for: cross-precinct sustainable travel
For those with their walking boots on but with a mind to cover as much ground as possible, take a look at tram schedules or drop a pin for your closest Lime bike to help you jet across the precincts at your own pace. Travel with friends and bundle your cardio into your day of design and make sure you fit as many showrooms as possible into your day without having to stress about parking.
