Getting Around Melbourne
Melbourne’s CBD is easy to navigate on foot – the roads in the heart of town are arranged in a neat grid pattern with lots of lanes linking the big and little streets – and there are walking tracks beside the Yarra River and in the parks and gardens.
There are 24 routes connecting the city and suburbs, with the maroon City Circle tourist tram lapping the CBD, and while passengers need a loaded myki card to ride through the suburbs it’s free to travel on trams in the central zone.
Bring a helmet from home and use a blue Melbourne Bike Share pushie to get around, with the cost calculated on how long you have a bicycle and charged to a credit card swiped at the start of the journey.
Those travelling further afield can catch a train with 16 regular routes and 215 railways stations in the metro network, and a charged myki card will carry passengers to all points.
