More E-Class trams on the way

Tuesday 15 July 2014

E-Class 6001

From 14 July 2014, every month around one E-Class tram will begin taking passengers on Melbourne's busiest tram route, Route 96, until the end of 2014.

By the end of the year, Route 96 will have at least 10 E-Class trams providing capacity for 2100 passengers at any one time.

As more E-Class trams arrive, more high-capacity low-floor trams will be cascaded to other routes where patronage or demand is greatest, meaning several routes and thousands of passengers will benefit from the arrival of more E-Class trams onto the network.
