Hi guys,

We are doing a quick survey and would like your feedback if you drive or take a train to work?

Thanks in advance.

Hi All,

As retired I do not work but when I did work, it was necessary to drive. Several reasons involved. First, the trains did not suit my working hours which were outside of train times. Second, the distance to train stops both directions, if there were trains, was too great. Third and most important is that I needed to carry work tools some of which could be classed as dangerous weapons so were banned on any public transport including taxis.

No trains here, no bus service at 2 am. Drive is the only answer.

Got plenty of trains where I live, but none suitable for passengers unless you enjoy sitting ontop of a pile of iron ore

train ;( (it sucks)

working in CBD, cost of toll and parking (if you can find a spot that fits 2.4m height) make driving way to expensive.

I moved to the city from port Melbourne for work and have been using the train  for 12 months after never using it since I was a teenager. That's a long time ago. 

now I'm on vline on the Geelong line . Great seats some with fold down tables like a plane , toilets, drinking taps even has a quiet carriage. Got to say Ime impressed. Half the travel time maybe more. Use it now and then for the footy or a night on the town 

Maybe the metro might not be so nice but the country train is okay
