Places of Interest in Melbourne
Traveling in Melbourne and around Australia is convenient. Public transport and facilities including buses, trams, trains, planes, domestic and international airports, coach and train stations as well as bus and tram stops are available for public use.
Melbourne‘s public transport system consists of bus, tram and train and is divided into two travel zones. Zone 1 includes the city centre and Zone 2 includes the middle to outer suburbs of Melbourne. Regional areas are serviced by V/Line trains. The system uses an automated ticketing system called Myki and can be purchased at train stations, machines in trams, major tram stops and retail outlets displaying the Myki logo.
Students can also catch a taxi on the street or book prior by telephone. There are also taxi ranks in most busy locations, especially near railway stations, hotels, and the airport. At the ranks, taxis wait in a queue for passengers. Taxis are more expensive after 9pm and at weekends.
