Here's what you need to know before hopping on board the light rail.
There are 13 stops along the light rail route from the city up the centre of Northbourne Avenue and Flemington Road to Gungahlin.
Trips from the city to Gungahlin will run from 6am-11.30pm on weekdays, 6am-1am on Saturday, and 8.30am-11.30pm on Sundays and public holidays. In the other direction, the tram runs from Gungahlin to the city from 6am-11pm on weekdays, 6am-12.30am on Saturdays, and 8am-11pm on Sundays and public holidays.
Trams arrive at each stop every six, 10 or 15 minutes, depending on the time of day - every six minutes during peak hours.
Do I need a ticket? Yes. You can buy a MyWay card to tap on and tap off at the platforms. Or you can buy a ticket a vending machine at the stops or interchanges.
From Monday, April 29 until Sunday, May 26 it's free if you use a MyWay card. After that, the fares are the same as buses: for an adult, $3.22 during peak times and $2.55 off-peak (no matter how many stops). For a day of travel, fares are capped at $9.60 on weekdays and $5.87 on weekends.
Will I get a seat? Not necessarily. Each tram fits 207, but only has 66 seats. Each tram has two wheelchair spaces and 12 red seats for the elderly, pregnant and people with impaired mobility.
Can I take my bike? Eat or drink? Yes to the bike - but use the racks. No to food and drink, or feet on chairs.
