Are local buses, trams, trains or taxis safe and affordable?

Safe, yes. Affordable - relatively. You'll buy a myki public transit card for A$6 and use that for all of your tram, train and bus trips. You can "top up" with money or buy a pass. The daily max is A$8.40. A two-hour trip is A$4.10. Taxis are not cheap: use Uber to save money. - Jul 18, 2017
