Public Transportation in Melbourne

Melbourne’s public transport system is easy and affordable. One MET card allows you on any train, tram, or bus. There are many choices: 2 hour, daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly MET card passes. If you are here for an extended period of time, Leading Out suggests a monthly MET card as it is cheaper in the long run. For schedules and fares, please go to:

Travel Time from Melbourne to Other Cities in Australia

Melbourne is a great city as it is fairly central to other major destinations. When traveling to Melbourne from an international destination or domestically, make sure to fly into the Tullamarine airport which is only 20 minutes to the city. The Avalon airport may have cheaper fares but it is about an hour and half from Melbourne. If traveling domestically use Virgin Blue, Tiger Airways or Jet Star for cheap flights.

Further travel discounts are available to Leading Out teachers.
