View Full Version : V. IMPORTANT: If ur catching Public Transport to the AO, u SHOULD REALLY read this

I guess everyone who lives in Melbourne and uses the public transport system knows already its really shit. But now with the AO 3 days away and hundreds and thousands of ppl and then some catching the trains in the city, this is going to be a nightmare. Connex are (possibly) going to cut down train services in the city stations. Its really bad enough catching a train home during peak hour (at night) when all the ppl who work in the city are doing it too, its just as worse in the morning (7.30am-8.17am city loop trains).

Im just rambling on a bit too much now, lol. Just read these articles. You can judge for urself. but trust me, imo u better be extremely patient.
