Improving Australian Public Transport
Having used efficient public transport in Greece and Turkey, it is disappointing to get back to Australia and find state governments continuing to fail to provide it here.

In contrast, Istanbul has a simple and effective electronic system which works on trains, trams, metro and ferries.
