Economics.  There are not enough passengers to make the operation economical.

Unfortunately not enough riders that make it fees able to run the tram all month.

When the trams run is based on demand. The boardwalk trams do not run the whole month of September and are now done running until next spring because there are not enough riders to make it cost-effective to run the trams. I note that in the past few years OC has expanded the number of days when the tram runs in May and September.

The tram only runs a full week after Labor Day, then for two more weekends until the end of Sunfest.  After that, it is put away until Springfest in May.
