per cent of services arriving on time. Target for reliability is

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 successfully delivered a new
platform stop on Carlisle Street in Balaclava, improving safety and
accessibility on Route 3/3a and 16, and increasing connectivity for
passengers between trams and trains at Balaclava Station.
Yarra Trams also implemented the new Master Timetable on May
We are continuing our readiness activities in preparation for
the June construction blitz, including large road works, Metro and
state projects. During 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.
