Tram route 59 is a public transport service in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. It runs from the intersection of Flinders Street and Elizabeth Street in the city centre to Airport West in the north western suburbs.
Like most Melbourne tram routes, route 59 operates entirely in Metcard ticketing Zone 1. The route is primarily operated by B2 class trams from Essendon tram depot, and occasional Z3 class tram when B2 class trams are required elsewhere.
The route runs along Elizabeth Street in the city, Flemington Road in Parkville, Mount Alexander Road through Flemington, Ascot Vale and Moonee Ponds, Pascoe Vale Road through Moonee Ponds and Essendon, Fletcher Street in Essendon, Mount Alexander Road in Essendon, Keilor Road through Essendon North and Niddrie, and Matthews Avenue in Airport West where it terminates at the corner of Matthews Avenue and Rodd Road.
The tram does not go to Melbourne Airport; its destination boards state "Airport West" as this is the name of the suburb where the tram terminates. That suburb is so named as it lies west of Essendon Airport.
