Hong Kong Tramways

Tram service in Hong Kong began in 1902 making it the oldest form of public transportation that is still widely used in Hong Kong today. Hong Kong Tramways operates around 170 trams with the majority being built in the 1960's with continual upgrades. One tram was built in the 1950's and several are only a few years old. All trams are double deck with a capacity of about 115 passengers each. 6 Routes cover 30km of track on Hong Kong Island. The trams run with other road traffic and feed off an overhead wire using a pantograph. The tram are slower than most transit services in Hong Kong but offers a leisurely tourist ride throughout busy parts of Hong Kong Island. Although the trams still have many riders that actually need to get somewhere when people arenít in a rush and they want something cheap. It is the cheapest form of public transportation in the Greater Hong Kong area with 2HK dollars for a ride of any length. This is roughly $0.33CDN. Riding the entire length of the line gives you a lot of value for your money! However, it should be noted that transportation in Greater Hong Kong on average is cheaper (per ride) than most large North American systems. The Hong Kong Tramway and KCR Feeder Bus together help to provide air that is cleaner in Hong Kong. Unfortunately the abundance of fossil fuel burning vehicles in some sense plays down plays this advantage. Adverstising on trams is very popular, the actual company paint scheme is dark green. Trams in other colors are in ad. wraps.
