Canberra's light rail took its first general passengers on Saturday morning. Here's some of the social media reactions.
We had a great fun trying the #Canberra metro. It took 30min from the Elouera stop to Gungahlin. The railing was too high for me, lucky I had my tall husband that I can hold on to. We had lunch at Kokoro restaurant, danced to the live music & took the bus back to avoid the queue pic.twitter.com/A0Get9A7UD— Shinta Benilda (@ShintaBenilda) April 20, 2019
