I found this today

Looks like they are also running a developer 'hackathon' event called VicTripathon, similar to the Brisbane Open Data Awards and the hackathon event that Sydney held a couple years ago.

Not sure how detailed the real-time data will be, but from reading the comments in that reddit thread, it may just be stop predictions (as opposed to also having vehicle positions like the Brisbane GTFS-RT feed), which kind of limits the applications you can make from it.

Melbourne still has not got public transport directions on Google Maps, with Public Transport Victoria and search giant Google stuck in an embarrassing impasse with plenty of finger-pointing going on.
