  • WOMAN
    Good morning, Travel Link. How can I help you?
    MAN
    Good morning. I live in Bayswater and I’d like to get to Harbour City tomorrow before 11am.
    WOMAN
    Well, to get to Bayswater …
    MAN
    No, no. I live in Bayswater – my destination is Harbour City.
    WOMAN
    Sorry. Right; so that’s Bayswater to Harbour City. Are you planning to travel by bus or train?
    MAN
    I don’t mind really, whichever option is faster, I suppose.
    WOMAN
    Well, if you catch a railway express, that’ll get you there in under an hour … Let’s see – yes, if you can make the 9.30am Q1 express, I’d recommend you do that.
    MAN
    Great. Which station does that leave from?
    WOMAN
    Helendale is the nearest train station to you.
    MAN
    Did you say Helensvale?
    WOMAN
    No, Helendale – that’s H-E-L-E-N-D-A-L-E Q2
    MAN
    What’s the best way to get to the Helendale station then?
    WOMAN
    Well, hang on a minute while I look into that … Now, it seems to me that you have two options. Option one would be to take the 706 bus from the Bayswater Shopping Centre to Central Street Q3. When you get there, you transfer to another bus which will take you to the station. Or, the second option, if you don’t mind walking a couple of kilometres, is to go directly to Central Street and get straight on the bus going to the train station.
    MAN
    Okay. Which bus is that?
    WOMAN
    The 792 Q4 will take you to the station
    MAN
    I guess the walk will be good for me so that might be the better option. What time do I catch the 792?
    WOMAN
    There are two buses that should get you to the station on time: one just before nine o’clock and one just after. But look, at that time of the morning it might be better to take the earlier one just in case there’s a traffic jam or something. The 8.55 Q5 is probably safer than the 9.05.
    MAN
    Yeah, I don’t want to the miss the train, so I’ll be sure to get on the five-to-nine bus.

    Before you hear the rest of the conversation, you have some time to look at questions 6 to 10.
    [20 seconds]
    Now listen and answer questions 6 to 10.

    MAN
    By the way, how much will I have to pay in fares?
    WOMAN
    Well, you can get a ticket on the bus for $1.80 Q6 cash and you’ll need $10 each way for the train. Wait, do you have a Travel Link Card?
    MAN
    No, but I can get one before tomorrow.
    WOMAN
    Okay, well that’ll make it considerably cheaper then. The bus will cost $1.50 each way, and the train will be – the train to Harbour City will … still cost $10.00 because you’ll be travelling during peak hours in the morning, so no savings there, I’m afraid. However, if you could come back at an off-peak time …
    MAN
    What does that mean?
    WOMAN
    Well, if you could start your return journey before 5pm or later than half past 7 Q7in the evening …
    MAN
    Actually, I wasn’t planning on coming back till at least 8 o’clock anyway.
    WOMAN
    In that case, you can make quite a saving if you use your Travel Link Card. You did say you were planning to purchase one, didn’t you?
    MAN
    Yes, I’ll pick one up later today
    WOMAN
    Good – that would mean that your return train journey would only cost you $7.15 Q8 with your card.
    MAN
    Thank you.
    WOMAN
    Is there anything else I can help you with?
    MAN
    Actually, there is. Do you know if I can use the Travel Link Card on ferries?
    WOMAN
    If you’re thinking of the Harbour City ferries that go back and forth between the north and south bank, those are the commuter Q9 ferries, then yes. A one-way trip costs $4.50 but with your card you’d make a 20% saving and only pay $3.55.
    MAN
    So, $3.55 for the commuter ferry …What about the tour boats?
    WOMAN
    You mean the tourist ferries that go upriver on sightseeing tours? No they only take cash or credit card. They’re not part of the Travel Link Company.
    MAN
    Oh, I see. I don’t suppose you know the cost of a tour?
    WOMAN
    In actual fact, I do, because I took a friend on the trip upriver just last week. We decided on the afternoon Q10
    tour and that was $35 each but I understand that you can do the whole day for $65.
    MAN
    Thank you. You’ve been a great help.
    WOMAN
    My pleasure. Enjoy your day out.
