Swanston Street’s new tram stops at Bourke Street opened last week, and while it’s good news to see more accessible stops opening, it’s also meant the Lonsdale Street tram stops have closed.
This means there is now no proper interchange point between Melbourne’s busiest tram corridor and Melbourne’s busiest bus corridor. You have to walk up to a full block to make the connection.
And of course, in many cases trams still have to stop for the traffic lights, even though they’re not meant to drop off or pick up passengers.
