The incident forced the tram to come to an emergency stop, leading to a more than five-minute delay.
Commuter Zlatko Spralja was on the same service at the time of the incident, and said there was little standing room on the tram.
"There was very little room to move," Mr Spralja said.
"After the passenger collapsed, another passenger alerted the driver, and then the driver made an announcement that they were going to make an emergency stop."
A Transport Canberra spokesman said the passenger came to after the tram arrived at Elouera Street.
