You can't always use free public transport, but if you live in Melbourne and regularly jump on the train, tram or bus, you can save a bit over the next fortnight. Until April 5, Metlink is offering 5% off the price of its multiple-ride tickets — weeklies, monthlies and ten-trip options — if you purchase them online. Delivery is free, the tickets don't activate until you use them and you can switch freely between transport methods, so it could be a good chance to stock up. (Why Sydney doesn't replace its ridiculous and overpriced hodge-podge of tickets with this kind of ticketing system is beyond me.)
