 免费环城有轨电车在市中心周围的环形路线上运行,路过主要旅游景点和商店。在墨尔本游览, 这种环城电车可以随上随下。环城有轨电车有两个方向,每12分钟左右一班,周日至周三上午10点至下午6点运行,周四至周六上午在10点至晚上9点运行。这些有轨电车是古老的W-class有轨电车,颜色是褐红色。大家在墨尔本旅行时可以试试坐这种有轨电车。
Riding a tram is easy. You will need to buy a Myki card (just $6 at retail stores and railway stations) and 'touch on' when you get on the tram, then 'touch off' as you get off. It's that easy.
Have fun on Melbourne's trams.
