MCG (Australia) parking situation for Swift shows confuses Americans [View all]

More than 280,000 fans filtered into the MCG over three days to see Taylor Swift take the stage and many people overseas had the same question: where did everyone park their cars?

To cater to the 90,000+ people going to the Eras Tour in Melbourne, extra train and tram services were offered over the three nights. The MCG is near two train stations and there are plenty of tram stops around Yarra Park.


Americans do not have the "freedom" that we think that we do. We are constantly forced to live a certain way because of lobbying by powerful interests. Even when other countries do things better, education, public transportation, healthcare, etc., we are told over and over again and again that it won't work here. Everything in America exists, not for the public good, but because it puts money in some rich person's pockets.
