Even on such a short route, it's worth noting that, out of the 12 minute

You are correct Richard, the psychological factor in the wait will be
significant for passengers. There's nothing worse than streesing whether
you're going to make a connection. A sense of rapid "perpetual motion" is
significant in winning over people to using PT. I certainly remember that
feeling riding Prague trams - always on the move and snappily.
