Ryan and Hannah from Victoria, Australia, are getting ready to plan their wedding after Ryan proposed to his partner of 10 years on a busy Melbourne train.

Naw, carriage 4 saw a proposal today! She said yes. Congrats Ryan and Hanna! #metrotrains #melbourne #love… https://t.co/fhPKTcbTgg

Ryan and Hannah were sitting in carriage four of a packed morning train on the Frankston line. About halfway through their morning commute the train driver announced Ryan had "a special question he wanted to ask Hannah".

"I have an announcement this morning that mostly concerns passengers in the middle of the train, specifically in carriage four," the train driver said.

"We have two of our regular commuters today, Hannah and Ryan; they met on the train about 10 years ago, they've been madly in love ever since, and today Ryan has a special question he would like to ask Hannah."

Hannah said "yes" (thank God because that would have been awkward) and of course the whole thing was captured on video.

"I thought 'What a fitting place to pop the question'," Ryan recalled to 3AW breakfast. "She had no idea it was coming. We were just on our way to work. The train was pretty packed. I think they were stunned. It's not the usual thing you see on your way to work on a Friday morning.

"I had to wake her up at first with a bit of a kiss. She had absolutely no idea."

Shane Luder, who was on the train when Ryan proposed, said Hannah and Ryan were met by friends with flowers when they arrived at Caulfield station.

Couples that commute together, stay together.

"With the announcement over the train's PA and flowers on arrival at the station he had everything planned very well," said Luder.

"I imagine it's intimidating to propose in front of 400 strangers. The carriage burst into applause after and people were congratulating the happy couple. It was the nicest moment I've ever seen on public transport."
