Message from our COO: Building on our efforts

31 Mar 2020

As the Coronavirus pandemic continues to change the environment we are working in, I want to assure you, both the safety and wellbeing of our passengers and people remains our first priority.

We continue to adapt and put additional measures in place to support us all during this very difficult time.

Since last week, we have begun cleaning and sanitising trams at termini during peak periods right across the network

A trial of physical barriers is currently underway on selected Kew and Camberwell trams and we expect this to be rolled out to the rest of the depots this week.

There are a number of interventions that you can do to reduce the risk of infection and slow the spread of COVID-19.

We all have a role to play, and can support this by following the Big Three:

  1. Wash your hands regularly
  2. Practice social distancing and
  3. Stay at home if you’re feeling unwell.

These are particularly important in reducing the spike of infections and protecting our elderly and those with chronic diseases or pre-existing medical conditions.

We remain committed to keeping you up to date with the latest information and providing you with answers to your questions.

We will continue to do whatever we can to get through this, together.

Stay safe everyone and take care.

Robert Tattton-Jones
COO, Yarra Trams
