The bus strike planned for tomorrow has been cancelled at the last minute.

The Transport Workers Union (TWU) called off the action, which was set to send a large part of Melbourne into disarray with some suburbs left without any public transport services.

Affected areas included Melbourne, Geelong and Ballarat, with tens of thousands of commuters to have been impacted by the strike.

Drivers for Transdev and CDC originally planned to stop work for 24 hours - cutting half of Melbourne's bus network.

The government has met with TWU and operators, with it confirmed by the TWU secretary John Berger that a vote would be put to members.

"As a show of good faith in the bargaining process we have called off tomorrow’s action involving members until that vote takes place," Mr Berger said.

This means that buses will operate tomorrow as scheduled.
