How's that line doing? Lots of people using it?

Stockholm has a few different trams/LRT in different parts of the City (and suburbs), but finding good pics of them is amazingly difficult.

Now the has 70,000 commuter per days (not bad but the busiest tram in France is in Montpellier with 130,000 commuter) per day. but we have three other lines


1992 - 2003 Saint Denis - Noisy le sec (northern inner suburbs of Paris)
The first light rail line in Paris urban area opened in 1992 it is the busiest tram line of Paris with 86,000 commuter per day. This light rail line is very insufficient for this way which would need a subway.









1996 Issy Val de Seine - La Defense (Paris's western inner suburbs)
This line is the second line in Paris urban area it connects two big business districts of Paris (Val de Seine and la Defense) It has 70,000 commuter per day. This light rail line is very insufficient for this way which would need a subway.









2006 Aulney sous bois - Bondy (Eastern inner suburbs of Paris)
The first tram train in France opened one month before the but I don't know the traffic of this line .
This light rail is a tram and a train unlike the three other lines it is managed by the SNCF not by the RATP

CroTram

These are the new trams currently operating in the Croatian capital of Zagreb. The CroTram is a locally built low-floor tram, hence the name.

The CroTram was rolled out on the streets of Zagreb a year ago. Recently the 50th tram was released out of a first batch of 70 ordered. At some stage this year another 70 more trams will be ordered bringing the total to 140 with more in the future.

The CroTram is one of 4 low-floor tram models produced in Europe. It was designed and manufacture by Croatian firms Koncar & Gredelj with over 70% of the trams components manufactured and assembled in Croatia.

There has been huge interest for CroTram in Slovakia, Poland, Turkey, Morocco, Bulgaria considering the quality has been proven to be of similar if not higher quality to other built trams but a considerable cost effective price.

Enjoy and let me know what you guys think

That's only slightly more than our buisiest bus-line, the #4, that's been proposed to be converted to tram (and if so expected to have in the area of 100k+ riders/day). Now if only they'd do something more than talk about it...

@Agram - I'm really liking those new Crotrams. Sure, not the "coolest" design, but they sure look modern and like they won't look past their prime in 5-10 years.

We don't have any new trams in Estonia because they are too expensive, but we have some trams with lowered mid-section, which actually don't look so bad at all.:

Still, most of the trams are without the lowered section:

And a bonus pic(these things do happen once in a while):

It's hard to know what is a tram these days, as opposed to a train or a metro or a light rail... such a crossover.
In the UK there are 5 systems - Manchester, Blackpool, Sheffield, Nottingham and Croydon. The government has pulled plans for several more towns but there are plans for a couple in London. Manchester arguably needs a proper subway system but by Uk standards it's a miracle that it got the trams at all.
Sorry I don't have any pics!

Copenhagen doesn't have any trams anymore... and since I'm not a fan of those I'm quite happy with that...

But regardless of my feelings there's some pretty sweet ones in this tread!
