I will introduce the city rail in Sydney.
I hear that almost one million people get on trains every day.
I think it's better for you to read the website to study English though.
www.cityrail.info

I usually buy a weekly-ticket from a clerk at the window
because the ticket purchased there covers a wider range of distances.
If I buy it by machine, my range is very limited.
I usually pay $31 to travel from my nearest station to the city every week.
I feel it's expensive.
You can board trains every 5-15 minutes.
Sometimes they are late but I do not feel that bad like Australians feel.

In general, the types of tickets are single, return, off peak return weekly etc.
Train fares also vary. It depends on the distance. (within 10 k, 10-20 km etc).
You can use buses, as well as ferries in some cases.
I will talk about them later.

There are many things to tell you, but I will tell you two more.
One is the fines.
If we have improper tickets and transit officers find the fact, we have to pay $200.
Smoking and drinking are also not allowed on the train. We have to pay more.

The other is trackwork.
Sometimes it's conducted on an irregular basis and then we don't have any trains.
But we usually are able to use buses instead.

Here are some new phrase(s) that I have come across in daily life.
1. the heck (on TV)
= used for emphasis
2. whopping (on TV)
= extremely large
