"Dodging tram fares" Public Transport Tip by grkboiler

Public Transport, Melbourne: 9 reviews and 6 photos

When you ride a tram, buying tickets are on an honour system. If you see people dressed in blue uniforms with hats on, they are coming to validate your ticket. If you get caught without a ticket, you will be reported to the government and the fine can be steep, so I would recommend following the rules.

If you don't have a ticket or change to buy one, just get off the tram. Just remember that people who don't buy tickets are a main factor for inflation of ticket prices, so it does no good for anybody to steal a ride.
