Yarra Trams has delivered record punctuality on
Melbourne's tram network and also exceeded its service delivery
target for March 2014.
In a month that traditionally presents operational challenges,
we achieved record performance results. It's a month where major
events such as the Formula 1 Grand Prix, Flower & Garden Show
and the start of the AFL season leads to a larger than usual demand
for tram services.
During planning for this year's Grand Prix improving service for
regular passengers was a focus. Network punctuality was almost four
percentage points higher than last year across the four days,
with noticeable improvements at Essendon, Preston, Malvern,
Glenhuntly and Kew depots.
With Route 86 service changes not required on the
first two days of the event this year, punctuality for passengers
along the line was almost 18 points better than 2013 on Thursday
and 13 points better on Friday.
Across the month seven of eight depots recorded improved
punctuality compared to March 2013. Highlights included Essendon
Depot lines improving by 6.8 percentage points and Kew Depot lines
improving by 5.5 percentage points.
