PT Problem of the Day: Some tram routes packed at weekends

May 7th, 2011 (PT Problem of the Day)

POTD: Crowded weekend trams

This is tram 16 to St Kilda, late on a Saturday morning. Just like in the evenings, some tram routes get packed at weekends, leaving passengers forced to stand for long distances while scores of trams sit unused in depots.

While tram 3a has been diverted via St Kilda Beach on weekends, it’s either not enough to cope with the loads, or poor information means people still pack onto the 16 (and 96) instead.
