Melbourne tram driver ejects teens as violent tirade filmed

·1-min read

A group of teens have been filmed being booted off a Melbourne tram after a fiery tirade against the driver.

Video uploaded to TiTok by user rambo_explore shows one of the teens aggressively yelling at the tram driver.

It’s not clear exactly why he’s yelling, but the frustrated driver becomes increasingly agitated by the disturbance, before closing the door of the driver's cabin.

But the yelling and screaming continues with the boy calling the tram driver a “f****** dog”.

Finally, the tram operator has had enough. He opens the door and shoves the boy, pushing him in the chest. Another teen who appears to be friends with the young man protests.

“Off the tram,” the driver yells, pointing to the back door.

The boy who was yelling and two of his friends are physically removed from the tram by the driver.

The man who uploaded the TikTok video claims the boys were trying to smoke on the tram.

A Yarra Trams spokesperson told Yahoo News Australia the operator has “zero tolerance for violence or abusive behaviour” on the network.

“We are investigating this incident and will take any actions deemed necessary to ensure the ongoing safety of our passengers and employees.”
