Trams fail the user-friendliness test

Fact: Train interiors, being unsupervised, sooner or later become vandal affected, graffiti affected, affected by uncaring food and drink consuming individuals and groups.  These leave rubbish and odours behind.
User-friendliness observation: Filth is unwelcome.  Witnessing unruly and vandalizing behaviour can be intimidating. Having no support person at night stops some people from taking public transport.
User-friendliness verdict FAIL
Alternative: There exist transport systems that control this very effectively; they do this by having a maitre de cabin in every car.  In the extreme, a railcar is, like a taxi, is privately owned.  Ownership conveys the required incentives and power for the maitre de cabin to assure taxi or aircraft style cleanliness and passenger behaviour.
