PUBLIC TRANSPORT IN AUSTRALIA
If you’re migrating to Australia – you’ll need to know how to get around on public transport.
Every city in Australia has its own public transport options. These include trains, buses, bicycles and ferries (boats). Most of them are integrated, which means you can use one travel card across different means of transport. These cards are the cheapest way to get around – they’re personal, rechargeable and electronic. Most are touch on- touch off – so you need to remember to swipe your card at the beginning and end of your journey. Some cities offer student discounts for international students.
There are also taxis and Uber (cheaper shared taxi offering) and of course plane travel.
