From Monday 4 April passengers travelling on the tram network will be able to take advantage of more frequent services between Wimbledon and Croydon with services increasing from eight to 12 trams per hour. This increase in frequency follows the completion of work to build an additional tram platform at Wimbledon station last year.
The extra services will help to meet increasing passenger demand as the tram network has experienced rapid growth in passenger numbers since it opened in 2000, from 18.5 million passengers in its first year of operation to over 32 million in 2014/15. The demand is forecast to increase to around 60 million by 2030.
The tram network is a crucial transport link to the community it serves, and Transport for London is committed to continually improving these services for all customers.
