The Hub is effectively a tram depot without any trams located in an office tower near the corner of Bourke and William Street in Melbourne city. It is the location of the radio control room and various other Yarra offices.
Drivers on many if not all routes passing through the city may be relieved for a routine meal break by driver based at this city depot. Presumably after that meal break they will relieve a Hub driver and eventually end up back at their home Depot.
While recording the video run of route 12 from Spencer Street to Victoria Gardens, the driver, who happened to be a former workmate from years ago, was relieved by a driver from the Tram Hub in the city. Luckily he let me continue recording but the chance to chat to my former workmate at the terminus was gone.
