Poor service from Yarra Trams

It is hard enough to run a public transport service when sharing the roads with the incompetent motorists of Melbourne, but Public Transport Victoria and Yarra Trams manage to add their own screw ups to the mix

No northbound trams on Swanston Street for ages, then a tiny Z3 turns up

Everyone tries to squeeze onboard, but they have no hope!

The platform stop at Collins and Spencer Street is only long enough to fit a single E class tram

So E.6032 has to hold short of A2.295 already in the platform
