Melbourne City Council has defended its support for fewer tram stops on Collins Street.
The council is supporting a Yarra Trams plan to replace old stops with new 'superstops' and reduce the total number of stops from nine to six.
Traders and commuters associations have criticised the cut, saying it will reduce accessibility and patronage.
Deputy Lord Mayor Catherine Ng says similar set-ups have worked overseas without affecting retailers.
"There might be some complaints in Melbourne that I've heard of, but actually, the patronage of the super tram stop as we see currently in Collins Street actually has been well utilised and supported by the public transport users," she said.
