He then paces toward the open doors and stops for a moment before politely ‘minding the gap’ and hopping off the train.

The video was posted to Reddit with ‘I legit just watched this little dude travel from Central to Wynyard’ sprawled across it. 

Many people were quick to point out the pigeon was able to use the service for free, as he wasn’t seen carrying an Opal card.

‘Where’s his opal card though?’ one user commented. 

Another person joked that animals were getting away with free services: ‘Animals are such freeloaders’. 

‘Thought I saw an Opal card under his wing,’ another person said.

Other users joked that the bird even managed to ‘mind the gap’, as it’s written on the platform in front of him.
