Getting Around in Melbourne

By Christina Kim - September 14, 2015

Transportation is well-established in Melbourne city; evident through the various infrastructure in the forms of the trains, trams and the buses.


This makes getting around Melbourne easy.
It is not difficult at all.

All one needs is a Myki Card, which can be purchased from all the train stations



Myki is a smart card which acts as a cash card and can be used to access most of the public transportation.
From the trains to the trams and buses, this is the card you will need.

Melbourne is another city that I see with this iconic tram running through its city (the others being Hong Kong and San Francisco).
This tram network is one of the largest in the world, covering both the middle and inner suburbs of Melbourne.

Effective this year (2015), the government has implemented the Free Tram Zone running in a designated area within CBD and until Docklands.




One can also drive (if you own or rent a car) or take a cab.


Just like New York, the cab here is in an iconic yellow.



The whole city is well-planned in a neat grid-like manner, just like Manhattan, and it is even easy to just walk around.

In fact, that would be one of the most enjoyable and down-to-earth to get up close and personal with the city itself as you get to see, feel and just be part of the local crowd and the lifestyle.
You will not be tired, or even bored, I promise.




With such a well-established transportation network and infrastructure, I would say that it is almost next to impossible to get lost in Melbourne.
Well, as long as you stay near the CBD, you should be fine for your city tours.

Do plan accordingly, that goes without saying for the tours outside the city.



Whether you are a local or a tourist, it makes no difference because it is just simple and straightforward to getting around this city.

Getting around Melbourne is just a breeze.
No question about that.

You don't need a guide.
