January 2018 performance results
Thursday 15 February 2018
Yarra Trams delivered 98.6 per cent of services in January with 87.8 per cent of services arriving on time.
Trams share the city's roads and traffic congestion is a leading factor affecting tram performance, which is why we continue to work closely with our on-road partners including VicRoads to find ways to make journey times more reliable. Yarra Trams manages the network in real-time to adjust to the road conditions and help people to safely get to where they want to go.
During January Yarra Trams completed important tram track renewal works along Lygon Street, between Weston Street and Elgin Street. These works will result in a smoother road surface, providing a quieter ride with less tram noise.
Extra services were provided for a number of events in January, including the Australian Open, during which over 488,000 passenger trips were taken on trams.
