Our pledge

Melbourne’s iconic tram network is an enabler of our city. We help people move to the places they want to go, by providing a safe, accessible, and sustainable transport option. 

We are a community leader and we take the responsibilities that come with this seriously. Starting with our people and our operations, we lead by example to improve the impact tram operations have on our environment, and we help people minimise the footprint by choosing public transport.

As a TAKE2 founding partner, Yarra Trams is committed to fighting climate change by helping Victoria reach net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
