Melbourne 交通局からのお知らせ

 前回 New Zealand の Corona Virus 対応
について書いたので、今回は Australia の
Melbourne での Corona Virus 対応の話を
書きます。

 Melbourne では、Tram(路面電車), Train
(電車), Bus を利用する際に、前払い Card
の myki(まいきぃ)を使用するのですが、
その Card を購入した時に、自分の
mail address を登録しました。
 それで、6月に Melbourne 交通局から、
公共交通機関を利用する時の注意事項が
mail で送られてきました。

 正確に表現するならば、
  Melbourne 交通局
ではなく、
  Victoria 州公共交通局
ですが、日本では『Victoria 州』よりも
『Melbourne』の方が、よく知られていると
思うので、ここでは Melbourne 交通局と
書いておきます。

 この注意事項では、『Escalator では、
4段おきに立つ』とか、『駅の platform や
Bus 停などで、屋根のある場所に密集しない
ように、雨の日には傘を持つ』とか、
ずいぶん具体的な細かい指示もあって、
(Australia の)国民性が出ていると
感じます。

 当分、観光目的で日本から Australia に
行くことができない状況ですが、myki について
少し書いておきます。

 日本人観光客の多くは、Melbourne 空港
(Tullamarine) から市街地までの移動で、
おそらく SkyBus を利用すると思います。
それで、その料金(だいたい AUD 20 くらい)
を根拠に、『Melbourne(または Australia)
の物価は高い』と結論付けるかもしれませんが、
それは誤解です。SkyBus の料金が高いだけで、
Melbourne の物価が高いわけではありません。
価値のある Service は高額で当然です。

 安い移動手段としては、901 Bus と Train
(Craigieburn line) で、空港から市街地まで
移動することを、おすすめします。現在は、
myki 払いで、AUD 4.50 です。

 myki (card) は、Melbourne 空港の T2
および T4 の地上階 (Ground Floor) にある
自動券売機でも購入できます。

 また、日本に住んでいる人には、
今年は多分無理ですが、Melbourne には
桜も割と多いので、myki で Tram
(の郊外路線[有料区間])に乗車して、
桜見物をするのも良いでしょう。
