X'Trapolis train internal refurbishment program

03 Aug 2015

The X’Trapolis train fleet will undergo a major internal refurbishment and graffiti removal program to help deliver a cleaner and more reliable service for customers.

The interior of the 80 X’Trapolis trains will be refurbished to remove all remnants of graffiti. From 14 August 2015, one refurbished train will be delivered to the network each day.

The refurbishment of each X’Trapolis train will take one full day to complete and includes:

  • a buff and polish of all internal wall panels (to remove graffiti shadowing);
  • application of a new anti-graffiti coating to wall panels;
  • replacement of window protective films; and
  • an upgrade of internal lighting (brighter lighting).

To keep the trains clean after they’ve been refurbished, there will be more regular checks and monitoring of CCTV to remove any new graffiti as quickly as possible.

Vandalism is an ongoing problem across the network, affecting all customers, causing delays to services and making services appear untidy.

Help keep our network clean, report any vandalism by calling 1800 800 007 (6am - midnight) or lodging feedback online: Feedback and complaints
