Public transport in Melbourne is run by PTV. You can travel by train, tram or bus through three different zones. Ticket fares are based on zones and periods of validity. Various ticket types are available. Ensure you travel with a valid ticket as both uniformed and non-uniformed inspectors check tickets and fines are very expensive.

Concession tickets are only available to those who carry concession identification (ID). You may be fined if you are unable to show your valid concession ID when approached by an inspector.  Unfortunately, students studying full time English courses are not eligible to apply for student concession cards for public transport. Check out the information on the Student Financial Aid website regarding Concessions & Discounts. Fare prices, concession details, timetables and route information can be found on the Metlink website.


Universal English is located in the middle of the city and there are many transport options to get to school. The closest train station is Flinders Street which is only about 5 minutes on foot. There are also numerous trams going through Bourke Street, Collins Street or Elizabeth Street which are less than 100 metres from our front door. Finally, there is also a bus stop right in front of the campus. No matter where you live in Melbourne, it’s very easy to get to Universal English.
