Travel bosses in Manchester hope a new zoning system that comes into force today for the Metrolink will make using the trams easier.
There will be around 200 extra staff out at stops across Manchester until Wednesday to help people gets to grips with it.
The system is similar to the London underground with the city being split into 4 zones. New trams are also on order to help ease congestion.
Stephen Rhodes from TfGM told Granada they have been listening to customer concerns:
A van has crashed through a brick wall and fallen onto tram tracks in Greater Manchester.
Emergency services are at the scene near Brooklands.
I means there are no trams running between Altrincham and Old Trafford.

It appears a van has gone through a brick wall and dropped onto the Metrolink tracks just north of the Brooklands stop, damaging the overhead lines and blocking both the inbound and outbound tracks.
Trams are unable to run between Bury and Manchester Victoria this morning after problems with the overhead lines.
Metrolink says engineers are working to repair the damage, but it's "unlikely" to be fixed before noon today.
Replacement bus services are running.
I apologise to our customers who are having to use alternative transport to make their journeys this morning. I understand that this is inconvenient and frustrating.
Investigations have begun to find out the cause of the damage to the overhead lines but our immediate priority is to restore a full service on the Bury line as soon as possible.
Services on all other Metrolink lines are running as normal.
