What does this sentence mean? Are we asking how long it took for him to get out off the tram? Or do we want to now how long ago it has been since he got off?

How long it took for him to get out off the tram. It was not Matěj's best day.

Okay, thanks! Perhaps Matěj is very old.

But to my (non-native) ears this English sentence sounds very odd...
