 It  was convenient for the Trams route in Melbourne to go  anywhere.Tram

 usually, there is examination of tickets
 unannounced. It seemed that therefore,
 almost all users had a proper ticket and had
 got on.
 A fare is not so cheap as AU$3.1 (= 270
 yen). However, a ticket is effective for
 2 hours,and there is a ticket various type (such as a Sundaysaver ticket,
 Weekly Full Fare ticket etc)
