How much would it cost?
The Phase 1 Trial has been calculated as paying for itself in just over 3 years.
The initial outlay for the Phase 1 Tram Line is estimated to be $110 million, including:
- 25 Trackless Trams ($75m - $4.33m per 3 car set).
- Essential stations and four major recharge facilities ($32m)
- A further $2m to plan and deliver the trial
It’s also estimated Phase 1 service would allow the rationalisation of 28 city buses, saving $33m per year.
