Newcastle light rail services are now running every seven-and-a-half minutes between 7am and 7pm on weekdays.
Services during the peak period, considered 7am to 7pm, were running every 10 minutes on weekdays since the trams began carrying passengers on Monday, February 18.
The state government commenced passenger services earlier than expected and with one tram still in testing, which meant the desired seven-and-a-half minute frequency was not able to be achieved.
The interval times were promised by former Premier Mike Baird during planning of the city's 2.7-kilometre light rail line.
Newcastle Transport operator Keolis Downer informed customers of the frequency transition via social media on Monday.
"The turn-up-and-go services will give you even more reason to jump on board," Newcastle Transport said in a Facebook post.
"More services throughout the day will make it even easier to connect with trains, buses and ferries, and move around the city for lunch or meetings.
"If you miss a service, it won't be long until another one comes along."
The change in frequency follows the arrival of the fleet's sixth and final tram earlier this month.
