Getting around Melbourne
It may be a big city, but getting around Melbourne is easy thanks to the CBD’s grid layout. Navigate via train, tram, bus, bike, foot or car and you’ll soon see why it’s a great place to live.
A low-cost way to travel around Melbourne is on public transport, which is accessible with Myki — Melbourne’s all-inclusive ticket to trains, trams and buses. For more information visit Public Transport Victoria.
While the city’s public transport is great, getting around Melbourne CBD is also possible by car. However, it can be busy so be sure to leave extra time for built up traffic and to find a parking spot!
Visit VicRoads to learn about hook turns, driving around trams and to brush up on other laws.

Weather permitting, the best way of getting around Melbourne is with your feet. Beautiful gardens, popular laneways and vibrant streetscapes make walking the preferred mode of transport for many locals and visitors.
