My city is Melbourne in Australia. The transport system is good. There are trams, trains and buses. They are clean and comfortable.

The schedule is not very efficient though. Sometimes we have to wait more than 30 minutes for a bus, train or tram. During peak hour there are too many cars on the road. I think we need more public transport. Then fewer people would use their cars.
