Tram Information

Trams at MOTAT operate 7 days a week except on Christmas Day, during the Pasifika Festival in March and when operational needs do not allow for safe operation.

Services generally leave every 30 minutes when operating, but this is dependent on the number of trams in operation on that day as at times we have additional trams running due to school groups, school holidays or special events. For the latest tram operating times view the tram timetable at the MOTAT shop.
