Hundreds of thousands of tennis fans took trams to see their favourite players battle it out at the 2018 Australian Open over the course of two weeks.
More than 488,000 passenger trips were taken on trams as the Australian Open enjoyed a record attendance of 743,667.
To help their journeys, Route 70 was supported by Route 70a shuttle trams running between the CBD and Hisense Arena, with high-capacity E-Class trams supporting B-Class trams.
Edward Thomas, Executive Director, Passenger Service Delivery said the success of our Australian Open service was due to good planning and the hard work of the frontline employees on the ground, as well as collaboration across all parts of Yarra Trams.
"We're proud of the work of everyone who helped to deliver hundreds of thousands of passengers to the Australian Open.
"Special thanks go to drivers, customer service employees and incident response crews who did an exceptional job maintaining services when the temperature reached above 40 degrees Celsius in the first week."
Yarra Trams enables hundreds of events each year in Australia's events capital, contributing to a healthy visitor economy.
