Love being new to a city and not knowing how anything works. Since being in Melbourne I was having troubles with my Travel-Card and instead of going out and buying another one I just kept on using it till it was all expired. Here I was was using the wrong ticket all the time to travel in & out of work. Back at the end of March I had purchased a Travel Card that only operates around the CBD of Melbourne and not to areas like St Kilda, where I call home. No wonder it was not validating for me on the Tram. My friend Andrew thought I was sticking it in the machine incorrectly but as you can see in the above picture, you just follow the arrow.
