MORNING COMMUTERS

I have blogged before about our Flinders St Train Station in the City. Here are some photos from this morning as I was commuting into work. Early in the morning (6:34 am) as you can see, the station and trains are not so crowded and make for a good commuting experience. Also, our public transport is free early in the morning, provided your trip finishes by 7:00 am. This makes for a less congested system at peak hour, which can get very crowded with packed trains, buses and trams.

This post is part of Lesley's Signs, Signs meme.

  2. I love these, Nick! Looks like my kind of transportation! Wish we had something to equal it here in Seattle -- don't get me started on our local transportation!!! Have a great day!

  3. There is a gentle warmth in the train lighting and even on the station! I was wondering if the free ticket ploy was still in operation!

  11. I like our train system. It receives a lot of unfair criticism but on the whole is very good. I had no idea the pre 7am commute was free. Thanks for the tip.

  14. what a great thing to have the transport be free early
    encourages mass transit
    here in NJ we seem to encourage mass traffic

    I love the light in your shots, so mellow

  15. Glad its free! The cars are clean too! Do you get discounts or a monthly pass? I buy a monthly pass and senior citizens pay very minimum.
