Today, my train was canceled so my ticket expired by the time another train arrived. I was fined $90 by ticket inspectors 'cause my claim that the early train didn't run was "unsubstantiated". Leaving the train I was pushed by the crowd, fell, lost a shoe and had to walk home with one bare foot. FML

australia's train systems are crap. they don't take any excuses for not having a ticket. even when it's their fault.

@OP, i feel your pain =[[.

There is only one excuse I have found to work. Act like a retarded country bumpkin and it's your first time in such a big scary city. Easy enough for me because I AM a retarded country bumpkin that rarely goes into Melbourne.

Heh. I love it when a ticket inspector hops on the tram and half the passengers immediately run out the door

Connex are fucking bastards. And the government thinks it's solving the problem by changing owners in December. Bullshit, different name, same budget, same system, same trains, same cars! same ridiculous problems with aircon shutting down the entire system. To hell with Connex. FYL

wow you guys have a very bad system
I live in Montreal and take the commuter train all the time to get downtown
and when you validate your ticket, it's good for at least 2 trains

I've missed a train before simply because I was shopping while waiting, or bumped into a friend and decided to grab a coffee with her and get home later
you should be allowed to go on the next one without problem - its the same price! lol

I'd contest it, btw, since it is true that the train was cancelled!
