A safe and accessible city

Don’t run the risk around the light rail: cycle and cross with care

Do your bit for a safer trip these school holidays


With more children, families and young people in the city during the school holidays, it’s more important than ever to pay attention around the light rail.

Tips to stay safe

  • Only cross at a pedestrian crossing
  • Stay clear of the line when walking near the tracks
  • Don’t ride on the light rail tracks
  • Don’t be distracted by your phone
  • Hold the hand of any children you’re travelling with
  • Be aware when wearing headphones. Light rail vehicles are quiet and may not be heard

The light rail provides an easy and simple way to get around. It’s important that everyone has a positive experience, starting with safety.
