Be Safe

We want you to stay safe around trams.

We’ve put together these tips to help you stay safe around trams. Each of our trams hosts life-saving defibrillator devices onboard. 

Make sure to look both ways before crossing the tram tracks.
Trams are much quieter than other vehicles. You may not be able to hear a tram until it’s very close. Listen out for the tram bell.

Use pedestrian crossings and wait for the green man. Look both ways before you cross.

Remember, Edinburgh Trams don't work on green and red traffic lights. Our trams have to go when given their vertical light signal.

Tram vehicles are wider than their tracks and take longer to stop than you might think. Give them plenty of room.

Keep an eye on your children and hold hands when crossing the tram track and when using the tram.
