January 2016 performance results

09 February, 2016

Yarra Trams' performance for January improved compared to the same time last year, with 98.66 per cent of timetabled services delivered and 87.51 per cent of these services arriving on time. Our improved performance was achieved at a time when two major network upgrades were completed, at Clarendon Street Junction, Southbank and Moonee Ponds Junction. These upgrades provide improved safety, comfort, accessibility and real-time passenger information. This year's Australia Open had record attendance, and more high-capacity trams were used to transport passengers to Melbourne Park, with Line 70 seeing an improvement in punctuality. Night Network was successfully implemented on six lines this month, running all night on Friday and Saturday.
