They actually have officers undercover in Vic now, well on my line anyway, just pretending to be passengers, and check for tickets as you walk past or sit down near em, as well as nailing you for feet on seats.

me too. A lot of the people I know who complain about bad public transport are the same ones who often fare evade. I reckon if you're a bludger you waive your right to shoot your mouth about the public transport system.

My mate (a dumb mate at the time) picked up a $150+ fine for fare-evading, just for a trip from Eltham to Greensborough, which is 2 stations away. I mean c'mon, tickets are only like $1.20 for a 2 hourly in zone 2, and he's gone and blown a years worth of tickets in one go.

The prices are not that bad! The only bad thing about trains here is the punctuality (or lack of) and over-crowding.

They are idiots here. You are sweet if you have a GO card. If someone is on the train checking for tickets, you just tell them you have a GO card which you swipe when you get on and off, and they just go "Ok" and walk off.

Having said that though, I still swipe on and off, as I want to be safe. There are sometimes I have to quickly get to the train that I don't swipe as if I am running late and it's really far away or something.

What about those who use public transport legally but still say it's shit?

Edited: Misread the post so toned down the language.

Bloody hell, they actually check that feet on the seat thing?! If the train isn't crowded when I get on after Uni, I usually put my feet up somewhere and have a little snooze, and no-one fines or warns me. Maybe they've given up caring on the Gawler line Laughing To busy stopping the drunk bogans from irritating everyone to death, probably.
Yea, Melb Public transport is ran so bad it is hard to make a profit from it. So they hand out as many fines as they can, to get that sweet sweet profit.
