Light rail operators across the UK and Ireland are getting together to look at ways to tackle the increase in anti social behaviour seen across the countries since the lifting of Covid restrictions.
The UKTram Operations Group recently met and heard how incidents have increased since the lifting of Covid restrictions. The problem will be discussed further at their next meeting so systems can share their experiences and how they can be solved.
Steve Duckering, UKTram Operations Manager, said: “Light rail systems do not operate in isolation from the communities they serve, and anti-social behaviour appears to be growing problem for all transport operators. However, there are measures that can be taken to minimise the impact of such behaviour and reduce the number of incidents, and members of the group are committed to sharing best practice on dealing with the problem.”
The Operations Group also heard about Signal Passed at Stop management with a presentation given by Graham Fitzgerald from Dublin’s Luas network.
