Not quite correct.

Australians don't operate trams nowadays unless you are referring to the
tram drivers.

Operations are controlled by private sector 'operators' who are engaged
(often indirectly) by governments.

Unless the particular government is an 'informed buyer' of the Operators
services (these operators are all foreign companies often with OS
government involvement) there is little actual involvement/direction  by
Australians of whether the operations are providing maximum bang for the
taxpayers buck.
