      Korean transit company is installing inductive charging system. Batteries on the bus are recharged as the bus drives over a particular segment of pavement.

      Would seem to work just as well for trams, with recharging at stations.
      Probably means the buses/trams would be heavier (because they have to carry some batteries), but the battery systems are getting lighter all the time.
