Rest assured my Kiwi friends, your Bank of New Zealand is safe and secure here in Melbourne with funds invested in a good solid piece of real estate. Ah, but wait. Now owned by the National Australia bank.
These French made trams that roam some of Melbourne's streets have only just begun to receive all over advertising. While it may make them look pretty on the streets and be profit making, it makes it very difficult to see out of the windows when you are in unfamiliar environs. It is almost impossible to see through the tint and advertising at night. Yarra Trams seem to think it is fine to block passengers' views from their vehicles to the outside.
Go home. Go home. Can't youse all just bloody well all go home and give me back my sleepy Melbourne streets for me to be firing a cannon down.
There used to be a tram Lonsdale Street, albeit a cable tram, a long time ago. A very poor bus service has been running for varying lengths along Lonsdale Street, but much attention has now been paid to the service and now there is a frequent bus service running the length of the street. I am not sure how popular the service is and I have not used it yet, but four different people arrived at the stop the wait for a bus in the thirty seconds I stood there.
