How to Board The G: Safely

While boarding the tram it’s important to follow these simple tips:

  • Prepare early by tapping on at the station and plan ahead so you don’t need to rush.

  • Only enter and exit station platforms at the designated entry and exit points. Do not walk through gardens, along the tracks or around fences.

  • Never rush to catch a departing tram – another tram is only minutes away.

  • If you require more time to board, wait in the blue boarding assistance squares at the station platform. When the tram arrives, use the blue button on the door to enter the tram to hold the door open for longer. This also alerts the driver you may need additional time to find a seat.
