April 2018 performance results
Yarra Trams delivered 99.1 per cent of services in April with
83.9 per cent of services arriving on time. Monthly reliability is
the best April reliability since 2013.
Trams share the city's roads and traffic congestion is a leading
factor affecting tram performance. This is why we continue to work
closely with our on-road partners including VicRoads to find ways
to make journey times more reliable.
This month, Yarra Trams continuously engaged with major works
Authorities to anticipate and mitigate impacts and supported the
delivery of major events and occupations. This included St Kilda Rd
Works as part of Metro Tunnel Project, Hurstbridge Line metro
closure as part of Level Crossing Removal Project, and Hoddle
Street reduced capacity as part of Streamlining Hoddle Street
During these major disruptions, Yarra Trams manages the network
in real-time to adjust to the road conditions and help people to
safely get where they want to go. Yarra Trams also successfully
delivered 400 additional services on ANZAC Day.
We are continuing our readiness activities for the challenging
weather conditions generally observed in autumn and we are
finalising preparation for our new timetable implementation on 20th
May 2018. Keep an eye out for minor changes to your usual journey
