Combino Plus Tram in, Karachi Tram out

Yarra trams has added a new Siemens Combino Plus tram which according to the company improves accessibility, comfort and safety. On the comfort side, it adds more space, better ventilation, better ride stabilisation, and larger screens for stop information. Catch it on Route 16 from Melbourne University to St.Kilda.

The W11 Karachi to Melbourne tram was commissioned during the Commonwealth games last year. It’s colourful decoration is based on the W11 buses that are found in Karachi, Pakistan. If you walked around on Friday nights, you would have spotted this very bright tram. It was given a special run on the City Circle route between November and ending last week. The W11’s future is uncertain for now but I would guess that it will turn up again in the future.
