Tram safety

Nothing is more important to Yarra Trams than the safety of our employees, passengers and the community. That’s why we’re constantly improving the safety of Melbourne’s tram network.

But we can’t do it all on our own. Everyone must play a role in keeping themselves and others safe.

Look, listen and always be alert around trams:

  • Watch and listen for oncoming trams in both directions when crossing tracks
  • Watch and listen for traffic, particularly when crossing roads to get on and off trams

Tram Coach has three simple tips for you when onboard:

  • Sit tight
  • Grip right
  • Stand strong
