Edinburgh Trams scores highly in light rail survey

Trams 275 and 266 at Haymarket. RICHARD CLINNICK.

Edinburgh Trams has the most satisfied light rail passengers in the country, with 99% of those surveyed by Transport Focus (TF) claiming to be happy with their journeys.

Six light rail networks were surveyed by TF, and all scored satisfaction levels of 90% or greater. Midland Metro showed the greatest improvement, up from 82% in 2015 to 92% in 2016. Only Sheffield Supertram showed a decline in passenger satisfaction, although its level was still 91%.

The most important factor for passengers is punctuality, with satisfaction overall rising by two percentage points (pp) to 88%. Walking time to and from tram stops also improved, up 4pp to 88%.

    I believe local bus routes were rerouted to terminate at tram stations, making the tram much more efficient and effective. Radical thinking from the Scots eh?
