If there is only one tram running on Sunday, that is a disruption. Both trams usually run, and they start even earlier when the F is out in one direction. Expect long lines for the Tram.

Hello RIOC...who there is on happy pills to pull such crap! Doesn't anyone in RIOC know how to think? By the way, we pay your salaries, so maybe we oughta organize and get you all fired!

The tram ran every 7.5 minutes when I took it today.

My original post was referring to Sunday when they are doing the evacuation and rescue drill. They use one cabin. Maybe someone will decide that it should not be done on a no subway day.
