Getting around Melbourne
Melbourne's public transport is coordinated by PTV, which has an excellent journey planner on its website.
Train The fastest way to travel significant distances across the city.
Tram So very Melbourne, the city's trams criss-cross the city centre and extend through much of the surrounding suburbs.
Bus Fills the gaps left by the trains and trams but have to contend with traffic.
Taxi Taxis are regulated, metered and relatively easy to find. Uber also operates in Melbourne.
Car & Motorcycle Cars tend to be more of a hindrance than a help in Melbourne, as parking is difficult, roads are busy and public transport is good.
