PT Problem of the Day: How much time do trams waste just sitting at traffic lights? [video]

Yarra Trams’ own figures show trams spend an average of 17% of travel time waiting at traffic lights. PTUA figures show on some sections of road, it can be up to 30%.

Lack of tram priority wastes passengers’ time, wastes resources (trams and drivers), leads to less frequent services, and leads to more overcrowding.
