Feedback from the W-11 TRAM first season during 2006 Commonwealth Games

W-11 TRAM undertook its first season as part of Festival Melbourne2006, the cultural festival of the Melbourne Commonwealth Games in March 2006. The project's future after the 12 days of the Games festival was uncertain. Passengers piped up: 'its so beautiful'; 'so much fun!'; and 'it must be kept!'

Read the passengers comments that led to W-11 TRAM moving forward to a second season.
